The Striped Bass Fishing on the Kennebec River is HOT and shows no signs of slowing down. We're catching them on flies, lures and bait. Averaging 20 fish a trip right now. Keeper sized fish are a bit scarce but tons of nice stripers between 15" and 27". And many of them are fatties! The water temps are starting to rise causing the stripers and the bait to hold in deeper water. Surface action is sporadic but the fishing is excelent if you fish deep.
Reserve your fishing charters soon - I only have 14 open dates between now and Labor day. Capt. Dave Pecci
Micheal Arthur Charter July 21st
Micheal and his buddies caught somewhere around 20 fish on Friday using jigheads with Super Flukes tails. Micheal caught a really nice one on bait. It was almost 28" and weighed about 8 pounds. We had some sporadic surface feeds which is always a bonus in mid-July.
Peter and Brad Kline Charter July 19th
Brad put the hurt on the stripers on Wednesday using my Orvis 9wt Helios 2 and 350gr Depth Charge line. Brad's dad Peter got the big one of the day on a 1/2oz jighead and a white Super Fluke tail. I absolutely LOVE fishing on foggy Kennebec River mornings!
Carroll Ware and Adam Cotes Charter July 17th
Great fly fishing action on the Kennebec River is continuing into mid July. Carroll and Adam from Fins and Furs Adventures caught over 30 striped bass during their 6 hour morning charter. We're catching them on both floating and sinking lines. There's more striped bass in the River than we have seen in years. One of the clips in this video shows Carroll catching a 22" schoolie striped bass on a colossal 13" bunker fly! These stripers have BIG appetites.
