Early Season Updates and Fly Pattern, Maine Striper Fishing

  Long Island’s bays and backwaters are teeming with baitfish. Herring, bunker, spearing, and even peanut bunker have been spotted in marinas, tidal creeks, and bays around the island.  when migratory stripers do arrive they’ll have plenty of food to keep them around and happy. Some stripers that have been caught on long island are thought to be resident fish, . Migratory fish should be arriving soon, and then the action on Cape Cod will not be too long after, once reports  start to surface. I will keep updates on the striper migration, but don't be to surprised if there is a little on the Tarpon fishing in the Fla Keys I will be guiding down there through late June and returning in-time for the best of Casco Bays Flats season for Striped Bass.

Maine Striper Fishing Reports

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…..  Capt Eric Wallace - Coa…
