Grand Lake Stream Salmon Fishing The salmon are in the stream, pretty much top to bottom now.  Flows are low so the fish are concentrated. Hendrickson's started yesterday, caddis to come in a week or so.  Wooly bugger - nymph rigs work well in the AM.  Hatches start at 1 PM sharp!  Don't miss the action.
With low water our river can get crowded.  Please sh...


Finding some inspiration with the Family!

Posted by A.L.Poland in A.L.Poland Studios, 17 May 2015 · 209 views

Finding some inspiration with the Family! I have to admit I have been feeling a little bad for myself this spring. I haven't been able to fish as much as past years, and it has been bothering me. When I have gotten out I have been feeling the pressure of needing to make the outing count, and do well, or land a big one. I know wah, wah, wah, right! Well with a mild day Saturday and the flows b...

Welcome to the Tenkara Blog! Glad you found the Tenkara blog, my name is Dan Pierce and I live in central Maine with my wife, son, and yellow lab.  Everyone says no matter where you grow up in Maine you get exposed to the water early on wether it is the ocean on the coast, the lakes inland, or the streams in western and northern Maine.  For me it was no different, being r...

It has been a long time since the last Veazie update was emailed.  A lot has happened since then, most notably the Veazie Dam is gone and Atlantic salmon trap operations have been occurring at the new fish lift at the Milford Dam as well as the new fish lift at the Orono Dam.  As of Yesterday, we have documented 66 Atlantic salm...

So, an older gentleman (Bill) comes into my workshop one day asking about having some furniture repair done and notices the small collection of vintage fly rods on the wall and my “L.L. Bean Fly Fishing” hat (it’s...

My first time is something I will never forget. I was in my 20's and this was totally new to me. I wanted to try it and wanted it bad. I know it was late in life for my first experience but it is just how it worked out. It was early on a dark and cold April morning. I...

Gray Ghost Productions Blog: Rolling On Salmon Take 2 - The Penobscot River

Salmo salar. Arguably translated as “the leaper,” this Latin term describes a fish whose attempts at doing what it is genetically pre-programmed to do are nothing short of amazing. History has proven that if you give this fish an opportunity to succeed, it...


A Little Western Montana Gem

Posted by wj35 in Riffle Hitch Ramblings, 30 July 2010 · 1918 views

Here are a few pics from my trip to a little tributary of the Clark Fork. The smaller fish were taking big foam bugs, while the big boys were hunkered down on bottom because of the bright sunlight. Nothing a little tungsten bead soft-hackle couldn't cure though! The size of some of these trout surprised me because this creek is only 20 feet wide in...


Montana Report

Posted by Tom in A Sporting Chance, 27 May 2010 · 2347 views

Recent rains caused the latest Smith River trip to get cancelled. As part of 'PLAN B' we did a two day float down another river. I was lucky enough to get invited to fun float with my friend John along on the trip. The water was high and cloudy, but on the drop and clearing. This river doesn't have a ton of fish, but a reputation for big...

Kevin McKay, Owner
About Kevin McKay and Maine Fly Fish
My name is Kevin McKay and I became a Master Maine Guide in 2003. But before that I started www.maineflyfish.com, one of the largest fly fishing web sites on the east coast. It is dedicated to helping everyone who is new and experienced, to bring out their best when it comes to fly fishing. So it was only natural I became a guide and I haven't looked back.
