June 23 -2018 Portland area -Casco Bay Fishing Report
Welcome Summer to Maine!!!! if the past week or so of available nice size fish on the flats is a inducator of the direction this season is going, -I’m stoked!!! The returning schoolies as a whole have a bit more size then the last couple of season as expected, what's really is nice is the large amount of 30 plus inch fish on the flats- that are more than willing to eat flies or soft plastics, this is just fun good fishing we are having!!! There is a lot of bait around the bay and the bass have spread out past just being near the major river systems, fishing the tide is key, both incomer and dropping are fishing well---- Sight Fishing has been very solid and when tide and sun match up it's just outstanding !!!! We boated the fish in the above photo at high noon in less than 2 ft of water, get in touch if you are needing more info or looking to get out and enjoy some very good fishing…..

Quick Report: Maine Striper Fishing Portland area.
Just getting back from the Keys after what was one of the wettest Mays on record, the fishing in late April was off the charts good and was this past week once the sun came out so we could see what the heck was swimming around us.After a couple long days and a late night drive towing the skiff, the fly lines have been changed to cool water the Tarpon boxes put away and striper gear is ready to roll,
I was able to get out a scout a few mornings and happy to report found fish at every stop on Casco Bay and saw very few anglers fish size was all over the place from little schoolies to largest that we landed was just under 30, Look to the weather to continue to warm and more bait and bass to fill in the area fishery. More report coming after the weekend...
As always feel free to reach out for a update and quick text works best. 207-671-4330
