First of all, thank you to all our service men and women who have served and continued to serve! We're grateful for the opportunities that we're allowed to have due to you. So again, thank you!
Another season is winding down here in the north country. I guess technically we're fishing in the southern part of the state, but there are still opportunities to get out there. The drift boat had a successful, first full season and will be under good care for the winter. Can't wait to crack it out in the spring!
With the low water that we had for most of September and October, November has become the month for fishing. If you can brave the air temps, the water is still pretty warm and fish are very active right now. Make sure to check the law book before you go out and fish on the waters that are still open. The Mousam, Androscoggin, and the Presumpscot are all open and fishing well. Trout are still taking small BWO's and black ant patterns on top. Nymphs and streamers will be your best bet this time of year. Both stocked and wild fish are active in the rivers right now. We've also had some great reports from recently stocked ponds about big browns! Get out there before winter has you cooped up and dreaming about warmer weather!
