Dave, Jennifer and Caleb Vandergroef from northern NJ on their Labor Day weekend Kennebec River striped bass charter. This was day two of stiff northerly winds from a strong high pressure area.  The striped bass were off the feed but we persisted both on fly fishing and light tackle gear. Caleb, keep practicing your fly casting you have great promise. Capt. Dave

Nick, Mysia, Jerzy, Victoria and Dakota had a great day on the Kennebec August 19th catching striped bass on live eels. It took a bit of coaxing to get them to hold the fish for photos.

Eleven Hancock Lumber workers enjoyed an afternoon on the Kennebec River with 4 of the guides operating from the Kennebec Tavern and Marina. The fish cooperated and everyone had a great time catching fish on light tackle. The guys on the Obsession landed 14 striped bass including the big fish pool winner during their 4 hour charter.

August light tackle fishing for striped bass continues to be good on the Kennebecv River. Even with muddy water and high flow from Wednesday's rains the stripers are still feeding. This morning we had action on jigs in the lower river. As the tide dropped and the water quality worsened the fishing slowed down. The forecast for coming week looks good and the water quality will improve. We will be venturing offshore to look for tuna and shark. Reports to follow.

August striped bass fishing on the Kennebec River continues to be great! here's a few pics from this week's action. Light tackle lures and live eels as well as fly fishing are producing fish. If you're looking to fly or lure fish plan on an EARLY departure. Bait is working all day...

My good friend Darrell Nix and his family spent Sunday morning onboard the Obsession. We enjoyed perfect weather and excellent light tackle striped bass fishing. The fish were holding deep on ledges so Carolina rigged live eels were the meal of choice. We are seeing the best early August fishing in years. Most of the fish today were in the 22”- 25” range and very brightly colored indicating they were new to the Kennebec River Estuary. I have 8 open days in August, call, text or email me today and book your trip!

Here's some of the fly fishing and light tackle action on August 31,2014. We caught them on jigs, flies and live eels on thia this trip. The fish were staged up in many places along the lower Kennebec River.

Striped Bass fishing on the Kennebec River continues to be great. With water temps in the mid 70s most of the mid day action is on Bucktail jigs and live bait. Fly fishing and light tack lure fishing is productive early before the sun gets bright. We have some open dates in August, call or email today to book your charter!

Live eels are the breakfast of choice for the stripers now we are into mid summer.  The fishing continues to be the best in years here on the Kennebec.

Kennebec River and Casco Bay Fishing Conditions: Very Good - The river flow is returning to normal levels. Water temps range from the mid-70s up river to 60* on the beaches. Striped bass are staged throughout the River in structure.

Best Striped Bass Fly Fishing Technics: Surface activity is becoming less common with the rise in water temp. Blind cast near structure and rips. Cover lots of water and you'll find them. Go early, by mid morning the stripers have full bellies and are hard to entice.

Best Striper Light Tackle / Spin Fishing Technics: Bucktail jigs and shad bodies are working great along rips and banks.

My Fly Fishing Tip of the Week: Watch for birds diving on bait then use your sounder to locate schools of striped bass. Fish slow and deep especially after sunrise.

7 Day Outlook: Fishing will improve with reduced flow now that the noon is waning.

I get asked from time to time if rainy weather affects the fishing... My smart-alecky answer usually is " Nope, the fish are already wet". I had a great week meeting folks from all over the country who braved the rain and fog with good results I might add...
I'll let you decide if fish care if its raining.

I love foggy mornings on the Kennebec River, though I could do without the rain...  Eric and Janet Teske and Eric’s Brother Chris Braved the wet conditions and wind to catch a bunch of striped bass while on vacation here in Maine.
