June fishing was pretty average in comparison to years past. Trout started looking up a little after Memorial Day and bass were hanging on their spawning beds. It was a real treat to bring out some clients who are new to the sport, as well as get out on our own a little to continue to refine our skills. One thing about us is that we're always learning, whether it's new casting techniques or more about the water that we fish, we push our limits and continue to improve ourselves as fly fishermen. From GLS to the West Branch of the Penobscot and over to Rangeley, we've had a lot of fun on the water.
Although, trout fishing is slowing down with high water temps, we're continuing to guide on some rivers in the north country. However, we love tracking the weather in Southern and Western Maine as we can get you on the water after a good, soaking rainstorm. This cools the water and trout/salmon become much more active at these times. We still have some dates available for August and September if you're looking to learn how to fly fish or refine your skills while casting for quality fish!
