Kennebec River (Upper) reports

Marshall DeMott (marshalld) reported - 1 - Excellent fly fishing: the spawning fish are in the river and nymphing's the game. As the water cools rapidly now, streamers will be more effective on aggressive fish. We guided clients on 2 occaissions recently and we had fish on #22 BWOs and on Prince nymphs under indicators. Small midge larvae dropped off the stones took Salmon and Brookies. (10/17/08)
Marshall DeMott (marshalld) reported - 2 - Good fly fishing: Water levels are now stabilized and the cool nights are jumping the fall Olives to hatch. The water remains warmish, but those cool nights will be here from now on. There are flying ants, hoppers and giant stones along with Caddis all getting a look from fish in the Madison and East Outlet sections of the Kennebec. Copper Johns and midges are deadly and have been all summer in between rain storms. The high spates have been like a series of runnoffs and the fish haven't had to go through detrimental warmth and low water. Consequently, the outlook is bright for the fall fishing. www.flyanglersguide.com (09/04/08)
Marshall DeMott (marshalld) reported - 2 - Good fly fishing: 31 July '08 Easy Outlet of the Kennebec River near Greenville, ME. We started fishing around 7:15 AM and fly fished untill 3 PM. Although the water temps were warm, around 70 degrees, the cloudy conditions had the Salmon and Brook Trout looking up for midges. In all, we landed about 110 Salmon and one Brookie. Most were sight-fished using 5xtippet on 10-foot leaders. 6-weight rods were ideal. We nymphed with 2 # 18 Copper Johns and landed 2 15" Salmon near the faster water above the RR bridge. Soon it will be Hopper time on this stretch and all the rivers here in Maine. Caddis are booming each night with BWOs and all manner of insects available at any time. Streamers have also been effective primarily on the Brookies. (08/01/08)
