Kennebec River Gorge

This remote section of river is our showcase trip. We are the only service that guides on this section, as it is a bit of a challenge to access; this is why it’s so good! Undoubtedly known for its raging Class IV rapids providing wild white water rafting, the Upper Kennebec Gorge isn’t the most likely place to think about a pristine Maine stream and fly fishing for brook trout and salmon. However, when the dam owners are not releasing water through the turbines, this section of river resembles a small stream and has a hidden gem of a fishery located deep in it's bedrock canyon. We'll arrive at Harris Station, Maine's largest hydro-electric dam at first light and slip down the river in our raft and fish pool to pool for some of the most remote Brook Trout and Landlocked Salmon fishing Maine has to offer.

Cost: $450 for one or two anglers.

With the nature of the generation operations of Harris Station, there are times when the dam owners release water all hours of the day, making this section unfishable. If this happens and we can not fish in the gorge, alternative arrangements will be made. We’ll still get you to some great fishing.
