COVID FISHING UPDATE - 2020 FISHING SEASON

10 MAY 2020

 

 

COVID UPDATE

 

I am sorry to report that because of a rule our Governor has put in place, (a 14 day quarantine period for anyone coming into Maine) she has effectivley shut down the majority of our guided fishing trips for non-residents this spring & summer.

The rule is in place until July 31st. This will have a huge effect on fishing camps and guides from Kittery to Fort Kent .

Even though Maine has one of the lowest number of reported cases and deaths from the virus, the fear is the huge influx of tourists that flock to our great state each year will greatly increase the pandemic cases here.

Bar Harbor and Acadia National park will look much like a ghost town as it does in the winter with mostly yearly residents. In the summer though with normally 3 million visitors, it will look and feel like something out of an Alfred Hitchcock movie.

Keep an eye on our blog as well as our FB page as we will update with any changes. 

I Hope we unlock the fear the country is gripped by and this whole nightmare goes away soon.

Stay safe everyone.
