Maine Striper Fishing with Capt. Eric Wallace

A hand full of boats fishing Casco Bay in the Yarmouth area had a little early season success this past weekend, weather wise if you are traveling to the region in the next week be hopefull that the patterns changes soon, just unstable crap!! Water temp, things are in good shape lots of small bait around and reports of some nicer fish being caught in the Saco Bay area and we will continue to see more and more fish daily spreading out in the area.Tide wise the afternoon highs have been fishing better for us the past few days, we have few milder night coming up with a south wind and might be worth a go for a early am session but try to beat the forecasted 15- 25 mph wind now through Tuesday night.Water temps in the Royal- Portland Falmouth shoreline are around 52-54 once you get out past Cousin Island  it drops to the 48 degree range. 

Give any of the small rivers a shot at incoming high tides and on the turn around, tight to the grass banks smaller flies with active materials not onl…

Maine Striper Fishing with Coastal Fly Angler

THERE HERE!!!!

A few Stripers are now being caught here in Maine, the reports are fresh small schoolies this is good news and lets hope more of these smaller guys keep rolling in followed by the bigger fish. Some good shad fishing as well and the photos I have been seeing the shad have out sized the stripers that will change soon!!. Weather wise my windsurfing gear is getting more use then my fishing It has been blowing the past few days in the 20-30 knots range but looking ahead - Thrus is calling for light winds and temps in the 70's question chase big carp on the flats or Stripers in the rivers.....

Maine Striper Fishing Coastal Fly Angler

Maine Striper season getting closer!!!!!!I got a great fishing report last night !! a couple of Cape Cod guides went out after hearing rumors of a good bite the day before, and by the sound of it they hit it just right!!! between them over 50 fish in 25-32 inch range mixed in a bunch of 3-5 pound Bluefish - water temps in the 53 degree range in Buzzard Bay and more fish should be heading that way daily. On this side of the Cape there have been some  bass taken in the Boston Harbor and all the way up to the Joppa flats area,  look for that to improve daily. Here in Maine the  amount of bait in the Royal River I saw yesterday while working on the Action Craft at the Yarmouth Boat Yard is any indication, Maine's waters should be pretty good shape on the food side and support some happy stripers  once the fish push up this way. Im not a betting man but I will not be surprised  to here about a bright Striper caught here on Maine's coast any day now..
