Yeah, what Gilly said? I don't recall where the "invite" came along? This thread is about information. Maybe, Itchi, or a friend, is planning a trip and they needed info.?

Joe, you ever fish the "Logans" above the damn on Big Kennebago Lake? How about the upper Kennebago River itself? I know the "Key" to getting the gates unlocked if you need it. Saves the long walk. Get in touch with me if your interested.

Lines, That's the best stretch of the river. It just so happens the same family that owns the logging operation has a camp on "your friends" road.wink.gif

Might I add.........god's country.

that is GODS country... up there... ITS hard when I get the random day off or two, to choose from the salt or go to that area... I got up to middle magalloway this year between Azicohos, and Parmachenee this year ( middle fall) , and stayed at bosebucks. the water was still warm in the rivers so the salmon and brookies were stacked up in the channel just outside of the river. So had no luck in the "MAG" but took canoe and had great luck in the AZicoho. You got to hit it right.
But below the damm... whhhhhhooooooweee

I fish the Magalloway alot. Its hot & cold. There are definetly nice fish in it. I do best with streamers and nymphs. And yes, there can be great caddis hatches! The only place you could float it would be from Wilson Mills bridge down. From the Hydro station down is very rough white water, no place for a float tube.

I've spent a fair amount of time on the Kennebago too. I've never fished the Logans though; but I'd like to!

Thanks for the input folks. I appreciate it.

My introduction to fly fishing was in the Rangeley region, a place I now consider one of the greatest places on earth. While I never did get on the Kennebago river or lake they are on my gotta-fish list. Upperdam, pond in the river, and some stuff on the Navy property mostly.
Pete, I'll be in touch. I usually do a spring and fall trip to Rangeley. We'll talk biggrin.gif:D:D
Again thanks

Only you and I could get access to Navy property. That sound an awful lot like a private fishing bonanza. Working for uncle sam shure has its priveleges.

Appreciate that, Linesides! I have a feeling I know what you two are referring to in that area but wasn't entirely sure. I fish the mag and kennebago quite a bit, but only through Bosebuck/#10 bridge area and hiking in on the 'bago from the boy scout road or up near Kennebago Kamps. Always interested in new spots to try, however!

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.
