Kennebec River is fishing extremely well

Blog Showcase Image: 

Kennebec River angler guides and their guests had a great weekend fishing. We spent Sunday and Monday in the Kennebec River Gorge, Fly fishing. Both days produced good size brookies and salmon. Salmon seemed to be a bit more abundant on Sunday. The hatches were light, olive caddis, green apple caddis both made an appearence. We had great luck with the old standby, green woolie buggers. We also did well with stimulator up front, small caddis emerger as a trailer. Andre's Run was on FIRE, we landed 8 good size fish in less than 15 miunutes. Salmon were practically jumping in the boat. Overall a great couple of days. That's why we continue to say the KENNEBEC RIVER continues to be one of THE BEST FISHERIES in MAINE

Mike,

Thanks for sending along the photos...you got some really great shots! More importantly, thank you for making our trip unforgettable. We had such a terrific day out on the water and it wouldn't have been the same without you...I'm excited to have caught a nice little brookie but I'll work on upping my numbers for next time! Have a great weekend and we'll let you know next time we're up for a visit.

Best,
Maria

Kennebec flyfishing 6/14/11

Kennebec river angler guide Greg Caruso: High water release early in the Gorge. We had to switch our trip from the gorge to the lower kennebec. We put in a crusher and fished to caratunk. We hooked on to a couple nice fish right out of the gate, although we did land either fish the hook ups did let us know the fish were there and ready to go. Cold weather shut down any hatches that could have been. We did catch a nice brookie, but fishing overall was slow.
We headed up to grand falls for the evening, found low water there, really low water and some competition. Overall a slow day but did catch some fish. We are still recomending the gorge as "the place" to fish, when water levels out of harris station are co-operative.
Good fishing, see you soon.

Fly fishing on The Kennebec River is close to peak

The kennebec river gorge is ready to go. kennebec river angler guides were all in the gorge on Sunday 6/12. Chris was guiding Greg and I were trying out some new spots. It was a cold and misty day but the fish were there and hungry. Chris did well using his secret 'blue fly', Greg and I caught enough large Brook trout and Salmon to make it an unbelieveable day. Caddis hatching throughout the day, apple body, grey wing. We took our time in the upper sections and fished behind Chris, only fished a mile section of the river but did extremely well. Now is the time....can't wait to get back there. Greg is guiding the same section today, will post a report as soon as it comes in.

Penobscot

Kennebec River angler guide Chris Russell, had a pretty good day on the west branch this past weekend. Even though the penobscot was running 7200 cfs, Chris and his angler Dan managed to pick up some great fish, including the salmon pictured. Many thanks to Greg Boz of Maine River Guides for the work. We enjoy going over to the Penobscot to fish another great Maine river and are happy to help out our fellow guides. Chris is back on the kennebec this week. The kennebec gorge is calling his name....

The kennebec river water levels are back to normal. Fish flow until 10am. Had a great day on the lower kennebec on Saturday. We fished the Forks to Caratunk. Caught a few good sized brook trout, and one nice salmon. Caddis hatch was pretty impressive, not many rises....but there will be soon.

Kennebec river angler is back from the Delaware. We had a great couple of Days with our friends Larry Stroff and Steve Taggart. Caught some great fish, but we also came across some picky brown trout. Great Flyfishing water, but glad to be back in Maine on the Kennebec river.
