A.L. Poland
For fun did a limited run of hats featuring some of my art!  These are snapback and really comfortable.  100% acrylic so they don't sweat stain like cotton.  $15 plus S/H.

McKay's Fishing Adventures
On the second day, we had decided we were going to get up early and rent kayaks (which I won’t lie, I am not a real big fan of, but that was our cheapest option) to get us out on the water. First light wasn’t until around 630, so we got to sleep in a little...

Stream/RiverDate : TimeFlow
Penobscot Lower W BR, MCKAY STN, Ripogenus Dam* 01-01 IS WATERLINE?
Waterline is a national electronic publication that provides river flow forecasts and water level reports over the telephone and on the Web. Waterline flow forecasts are provided by the controllers of the sites being forecast and are updated in real time. These forecasts are published simultaneously on the telephone hotline and here on Waterline's Web site. Most river level readings are taken from river gauges that report over the NOAA's GOES satellite system. These readings are taken directly from the satellite feed and are usually available on the hotline within two minutes from the time they are transmitted from the gauge.

Waterline reports are current, accurate, convenient and FREE. Whether you're using rivers for work or recreation, Waterline is the quickest and simplest way to find out about current river conditions. A growing number of site operators provide their data directly to Waterline using FlowCast ©, Waterline's electronic data reporting system. Reports for these FlowCast sites are only available here at this site on the Web and on Waterline's toll-free telephone hotline. River level readings from public gauges are available elsewhere on the Web but most of these readings are only available by phone on the Waterline hotline. The telephone hotline is a great complement to the Web. The Web is a wonderful thing when you're at your computer but if you're an active river user, you spend a lot of time away from your computer. Conditions change while you're on the road and so do your plans. With Waterline, you can use your cell phone or any touch tone phone to get the information you need while traveling, camping or even while you're on the river!

Waterline can provide telephone access to water level and/or flow information for almost any river gauge readings published on the Internet or available on the GOES satellite system. If you would like forecasts for sites that are not already on Waterline, please let us know. If you can let the site operator know you are interested in forecasts for their site and tell them about Waterline that is helpful as well. Waterline will also add public gauge sites for which there is sufficient interest. Please Contact Us for coverage of sites not listed.

    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.
