Some great shots of Paul Skydell and Mike Wolfson fly fishing the shallows of the Kennebec for striped bass. The video ends with Paul getting a very nice one on a 7wt. using 10# tippet.Capt. Dave Pecci - Obsession Sportfishing
Maine Fishing Videos
Bill Farland joined me his past week for a few hours of striped bass fly fishing. We ended up catching 14 schoolies between 16" and 24". I love my summer office. Not sure if there's a prettier place this side of heaven. Its so easy to get focused on the fish and what it takes to catch them that I find myself missing the beauty all around me. This video captures some of that beauty. I hope you enjoy watching it.Capt. Dave Pecci - Obsession Sportfishing
A combination of breaking fish and casting to structure provided a great morning on the Kennebec. The river was full of small herring which we were able to match very effectively with flies.Capt. Dave Pecci - Obsession Sportfishing
Another incredible week on the Kennebec River! Pretty much nonstop action every morning on flies and lures. No bate needed. Catching striped bass up to 32" in many spots on the River. Here's three videos from this week:
Bill Farland joined me again on July 25th for a fantastic morning of striped bass fly fishing. We caught over 25 fish and several over 24" the biggest one weighed in at 7 pounds and was 28" long.
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.
Great fly fishing action on the Kennebec River is continuing into mid July. Carroll and Adam 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 Ware from Fins and Furs Adventures catching a 20" schoolie striped bass on a colossal 13" bunker fly!Capt. Dave Pecci - Obsession Sportfishing
Long time client and friend John Albin making this Orvis fishing guide look good on a less than perfect day of fly fishing. 15mph NE winds, rain and a 3 knot moon tide river current didn't stop John from catching over 20 striped bass.Capt. Dave Pecci - Obsession Sportfishing
Mike and Scott Durham had a great morning on the Kennebec. Over 35 stripers on fly rod in 6 hours.Capt. Dave Pecci

Corporate fishing charters are always fun. Jim Gibbs Dingley Press' VP of sales set up this June trip for two customers Tim and Adam. We had an action packed morning catching striped bass on the lower 12 miles of the Kennebec river. Most of the fish were caught spin fishing with 3/4oz bucktails. we had some luck on poppers and metal jigs too. On the water at 5am and back to the marina for a nice lunch at the Kennebec Tavern before returning the office.
