Jerry and Ted joined me for a foggy morning of fly fishing for striped bass on the Kennebec River. We caught around 30 fish ranging from 11"-26". It has been excellent fishing this June.Capt. Dave Pecci - Obsession Sportfishing
Fishing Conditions: The striped bass have somewhat settled into their mid-summer habits. Water flow and clarity in the Kennebec River are both good. Water temps are 62*in the lower river and 78* near Merrymeeting Bay. This week will have morning rising tides.

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
Conditions: There is a large abundance of bait in the Kennebec. Water temps range from 57* to 68*. Water clarity and water flow are average for late June. We are finding stripers feeding on the surface daily but the action is less predictable than in past weeks. The fish are ranging in size from 14"-30" with a few bigger ones here and there. We are averaging 20 fish per trip right now on fly and spinning gear.
Bait the fish are feeding on: Juvenile Atlantic Herring, Sand eel, Alewife, River Herring, American Eel, Mackerel
Target species right now: Striped Bass
The striped bass are becoming more selective due to the huge abundance of bit in the River.Capt. Dave Pecci
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.
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
