We have started the construction at the shop on route 201 in caratunk. Greg, Chris and I have all been right at it. The Sign posts are up, building exterior has been scraped and is ready for paint. the interior has been torn apart and is ready for some serious remodeling. Greg procured a back hoe from our friends at Northern Outdoors and dug a perfect trench to bring power to the building. Supplies have delivered from Hammond lumber, tongue and groove pine for interior, trim and shingles for the roof. We still have a ton of work to do but all in all we are still on track for the grand opening (we'll let you know the date) see you on the river, mike pils

The water levels have come down a bit, we actually had fish flow until 10am this morning. Greg and I decided to get a couple hours of fishing in this morning. We decided to take the raft from the ball field to crusher pool. The weather wasn't great, windy and cold, but we did get some fishing in. There were a couple other people at the ball field, we moved a couple fish there and them moved down towards crusher. We ended up landing a nice brookie and missed a couple others just before take out. We should see some more activity in the next week or two, we did see some small caddis hatches...can't wait to get back out there, water temp was 52. See you on the river, Mike Pils

Big things are happing here on the banks of the Kennebec! We’ve been super busy this winter getting ready for the upcoming season. We also had some time to think…I know, I know, fishing guides doing any kind of thinking in the dead of winter can be extremely dangerous. However, we did come up with one thing…. After years of guiding and fishing in the great state of Maine, the Kennebec River remains one of the best fisheries in the state. For the past few years we have selfishly been trying to keep it to ourselves and a limited number of like- minded fisherman. But, the guilt was just too much. We had to share this information with more people to relieve our guilt and make up for our selfish behavior. We had to take some action…
