The Kennebec River begins at the East Outlet of Moosehead Lake where Brook Trout Landlocked Salmon and Lake Trout are fished. May to November are the most productive months for fly fishing this famous water near Greenville, Maine. A fine fly shop and guide service is located in Greenville...Dan Legere's Maine Guide Fly Shop...good info, products and guide service. Farther south, the Kennebec flows into Indian Pond and exits at Harris Station where steep banks and cliffs shroud the treacherous fine Salmon water. The river continues and joins the Dead River at The Forks and flows into a huge impoundment above Wyman Dam....Wyman Lake. Below Wyman Lake in Moscow Maine is a fine wild Rainbow fishery flowing through Bingham, Maine and into Solon Impoundment...all trophy water for Rainbow, some Brook Trout, few Salmon, Browns and Splake and Smallmouth Bass...which we try to kill. Below Solon's Williams Dam the river has more Brown Trout, but there are still pleanty of Landlocks and drop-down Rainbows. A seven mile float can begin at Evergreen Campground and ends at the North Anson takeout. Below Madison there is a fine stretch of Brown Trout water which runs into the impoundment above Millstar Dam in Skowhegan. This section is often referred to as the Pines and is beautiful to fish. Below Millstar Dam there is wade fishing near the pollution plant and on the north side of the river at the Rt 2 roadside. The river then flows into Shawmut Dam Impoundment at fine Smallmouth fishery. Below Shawmut Dam there is an annually stocked Brown Trout fishery. There are two more dams below Shawmut Dam...Lockwood and Kimberly Clark dams are in Waterville. Below them there is a sea run fishery....Shad, Atlantic Salmon, Stripers and Trout as well as Smallmouth Bass are persent in Waterville and below. (1/19/13)
