Spring fishing has sprung early in Downeast Maine this year. May ( and this year April ) offer some of the best freshwater fishing of the entire year. Whether you like to troll for or flyfish for Salmon and Brook Trout or Small mouth Bass, Now is the time to get up here. We can flyfish a  Trout Pond or hike into a remote river for fantastic river Smallies. We can also troll the big lake for Landlocked Salmon and Lake Trout.

THIS SPRING IS GOING TO BE A GREAT YEAR FOR FISHING FOR SALMON, LAKE TROUT AND BROOKIES. DON'T MISS OUT! WE FLY FISH A SMALL FLY FISHING ONLY POND FOR BROOK TROUT.

2015 will definitely go down as one of the best Smallmouth Bass years I have ever seen !  At least one or two, 4 & 5+ pound fish were caught nearly every day. Our Bar Harbor & Acadia National Park visitors enjoyed a very special year indeed.

When it came to the larger Bass, Top water lures dominated. Theres nothing like watching a 5 lb Bronzeback come up from the depths on a flat calm morning in a crystal clear cold water lake. I surprised quite a few experienced Smallmouth fishermen when I proved to them how our Bass will come up from 20' of water to smash a Hula Popper or Buzz Bait.

Spring fishing has been off and running for a few weeks now. We are beginning to see the first of the Bar Harbor / Acadia crowd. Every year we guide more & more tourists that are visiting Acadia National Park. This year will be no exception.

The Salmon fishing had a late start in the lake we fish, but the past two days has made a big difference. I think the lower than normal water levels are contributing to the problem but a change in my tactics seems to have worked. We have landed some nice fat Landlocked Salmon our last few trips out.

We also had a great  remote river trip to fish for Smallmouth Bass. This is an exciting trip fun for the spinning rod fisherman as well as fly fishermen.

As we go into June, the Bar Harbor visitors will start to dominate our schedule, but I am always hopeful for the occasional fishing client who wants to go remote and fish for Brook Trout or Trophy Smallies up by our lodge.

The fishing has been great this Spring with many Salmon and big Lake trout. The Small Mouth Bass fishing has been exceptional while many huge bass have been caught off their spawning beds. The beds I suspect will be empty soon.

Brook trout fishing has been good as usual as well...

Bookings have been up this year which has me fishing almost daily.

Well much to my surprise, the Bass are spawning right on schedule. I really expected with the late ice out this year coupled with the cold wet May we had that the spawn would be a little later into June. Not the case, Monster Smallies are sitting on beds right now. Yesterday I took my family out for a short fish just a couple hours before my youngest's HS graduation and he caught this nice 4lb Smallie off it's bed. 10 minutes later his brother caught a twin to this one. We also saw numerous others. We would have had an awesome day of Bass fishing but we really needed to get to graduation.

The Lake Trout fishing has been excellent this year. A good friend of mine who targets Lakers more than I do has caught some beauties. 2 over 7 lbs. 

The Salmon fishing has been consistent with plenty of action. Still searching for the biggest of them. Maybe you will be the 1st. 

Start of the 2014 season

23 MAY 2014

 

 Guided my first of the season fishermen yesterday. A couple from Ottawa Canada. The man was on a quest to catch his 52'nd freshwater fish species ( Landlocked Salmon ) After 7 days of perfect Salmon weather with low clouds and showers what happens when the fog lifted ? The bright sun and big blue sky breaks out! While waiting for my guests to arrive I quickly took off all my dark lures and tied on bright shiny new ones. It took a while but by the end of the day we landed 4 nice fish, 2 Salmon 2 Lake Trout. Pics to follow. I need a new camera but as luck would have it the wife was a photographer and had a very nice camera. She will be sending me pics...
