2015 Spring fishing

28 May 2015

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.

One of our favorite Spring fishing trips is this remote river Smallmouth trip. Book a trip with Eagle Mountain and enjoy the fantastic fishing in the woods of Maine.

We also offer Flyfishing trips for Brook Trout.

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...

Spring 2014 fishing

Spring 2014 fishing

3 MAY 2014

It's been a long winter but Spring has finally sprung! We have been busy readying our boat ( the Queen)  for this years fishing season. I am very excited about 2014 for a number of reasons. The biggest reason has to be because the Salmon have made such a comeback in our lake! So much so that I feel very confident in saying it is now one of the best Salmon fisheries in the state of Maine. I fully expect 5+ pound trophies will be caught this year... Nuff said...

A look at the calendar and it appears Spring is near. A look out the window and it appears it's not even close!                                           But, it is what it is and there's no disputing the sun is climbing higher in the sky each day. The days of 50-60 degree days will be here soon and the snow pack will lose it's grip.

We've had a lot of cold and rainy weather, which has made the Salmon fishing a lot of fun. The lake we fish has made a huge comeback in the Salmon and Lake Trout fishing. Most of the Spring that has been our focus. Many 3 plus pound Salmon have been caught. 

The cold water had slowed the Smallmouth fishing up until yesterday. One of our longest customers came for their annual trip. We had a great day catching huge Bass. 6 of the best were:  two 20" Bronze backs, two 19" beauties, one 17 & one 16.5 inches. All 4 family member caught big fish and every fish was caught on something different. It was a fun day. Even though the lake was like glass, top water lures were the only presentation that failed to catch a fish....
