Pictures Other Fishing Guides Won't Post

​Guides including myself love to post "grip n grin" pictures. Nothing's better for entries in the booking calendar than a pic of a smiling client holding a big fish. You've seen lots of them from me this summer like this one from back in June. But here's three pictures that from my perspective are every bit impressive...

The Fardigs Enjoy Another Fun Day Fishing on The Kennebec

Jack and Will with dad and mom; Peter and Karen Fardig joined me again this year for another fishing trip on the Obsession. We caught some striped bass on bucktails and live eels upriver early in the morning. I had help from the boys getting the eels when I needed them.

Will kissed his first striper again this year just he did last year.

Kennebec River, Eastern Casco Bay Fishing Report July 20, 2016

Conditions: Water temps are now in the mid 70s upriver and in the low 60s downriver. Water clarity is slightly diminished in the River due to the runoff from inland rains. The clarity on the beaches is excellent. The River is holding several schools of striped bass ranging from 12" to 28". There are some larger fish staged up on the beaches and the south facing ledges from Indian Point to Cape Small.

Bait the fish are feeding on: River Herring, American eels, Alewives, Mackerel, Sea Herring and Sand eels

Fishing Tactics: Warmer water and bright sunlight is causing the striped bass to move into deeper water by mid morning. So go early, use topwater lures at first light and change to subsurface lures and flies as it brightens up.

Kennebec River / Eastern Casco Bay Fishing Report 07-11-16

July Fishing is Looking Every Bit as Great as June!

Conditions: Water temps in the river range from 65*-75*. The beaches are around 60*. There's tons of bait everywhere so the stripers have full bellies by mid day. The best bite is really early and again at dusk. But, with some patience you'll catch fish from late morning through the afternoon in the deeper water.

This year the River is fishing so good my trips to the beach have been fewer than normal but when I've gone the action has been worth the 12 mile run.
