FLY FISHING MAINE




Maine fly-fishing is well known for the big Brook Trout that inhabit the local rivers and streams. It is not uncommon to hear about a 5-pound Brook Trout being netted from these crystal clear waters.

In addition to the Brook Trout you will also find some nice Landlocked Salmon. These fish don’t get as big as the Salmon in Oregon or Alaska, they are usually in the 2-3 pound range. That is still a pretty large fish and taking it from the clear streams in the state can be very memorable.

Maine has some beautiful mountain streams and great scenery. Fly-fishing in late spring or in the early fall can be a rewarding experience. There are good places to fly fish in or around Portland Maine, making this a great destination.

RAPID RIVER

Rapid River boasts the best wild Brook trout fishing in America. The river is short, just over 3 miles long. The Brook trout in here can easily top five pounds, but they usually run 2-3 pounds. There are two ways to reach fishable water, one is to walk one mile and the other is by taking a one-hour boat ride. You really need to want it.
