First of the year

Downeast - Freshwater Fishing Report

Sorry that it has been so long getting a report out. But this spring has been slow for me on the fishing end of things. Turkies keep me busy most of May. But anyways here goes my report.

Trolling flies for LL Salmon and other trout has been going strong. Flies and other lures seem to be working real well. Salmon are still hitting up on top that is until the water warms up more.
A friend and I went the other day and we managed to pick up 3- 17 1/2" LL Salmon and a small Brown Trout. A good fight on a 6wt fly rod.

If you can put up with bugs (blackflies) small ponds and beaver flowages are producing some brookies. Drowning worms or useing flies seem to work in these places. Small lures work also but you have to look out for sticks that the beaver drag in.

Have a great time out on the water and be safe.

Downeast Fishing Forecast:

Even with the early spring this year, if we keep getting cool nights we should be able to catch a few more salmon in the ponds and lakes a bit longer.

Target Species:

ll salmon, brown trout, brook trout, splake, and lakers

More Fishing Reports:


Come fish with us east of the Penobscot River, which is known as the Downeast area of Maine. This area has lots of ponds, lakes, and streams to be fished. Trolling streamer flies is one of Maine's fishing traditions. Early spring trolling for Landlocked Salmon and Trout. Troll for Togue (Lake Trout) and other fish through the summer and fall months. Plus fishing for Large or Smallmouth bass with either fly or spinning gear. I also offer icefishing trips in the winter.
