East Outlet Kennebec River

Tip of the week 
Techniques 

New salmon in the river are eager to chase streamers. Fish aren't looking up just yet so be sure to get your streamers down near the bottom. Cast cross current, make an upstream mend and let your fly swing. Most of the strikes come at the end of the swing. Cover every inch of water and you'll find more fish.

Seven-day forecast 

Water has been pumped a couple times in the last week to 2600 cfs. The increase has even more fish in the river. Water temps are on the rise so pack your mayfly selection. The Hendrickson hatches aren't far away.
Current water flow information for the East Outlet is now on-line at Waterline.
