Was there last weekend.  Fished above Aziscohos.  Water was kinda high for me but that will change quick.  Some guys were doing well mostly fishing streamers, others like me....not so much. I counted twelve guys at one point on Sat. morning ...again a little too many for me. Smelts are pretty much done and the suckers hadn't started yet.  On Sunday when we were headed out, didnt see anyone at the mailbox and only a few down by the 16 bridge...water looked more fishable down there.

Went to the rapid on the 6th and fish were sluggish, but there. I imagine as soon as the water goes to a comfortable/fishable level, the Rangeley area is going to be dynamite (and packed with people :wacko:).

Suckers were getting ready to spawn when I was there today. Saw one huge salmon caught but mostly suckers.

Did you take a water temp at all?

I fished it on Wednesday, 5/23.  Fishing was good early in the AM and then that high pressure front moved in and shut everything down.  Frankly, it was very disappointing.

I Was up there Thursday to Monday. Bunch of Brookies 16"- 20+". Everyone was fishing nymphs and egg patterns. I nailed them all on my purple leach. More fish caught on upper than lower. Memorial weekend was a blast. 40+ fish was a blast

Nice size and number of fish. Gotta say I'm feeling envious, I have yet to get any brookies of that size there. Usually I go over about now but this year I'm heading for the coast and some striper fishing. Jeez, so much water so little time. Hopefully a trip over there in Sept. thanks for the report.
