East Outlet Kennebec River

Tip of the week 
Techniques 

Now that the caddis have started hatching fishing dries, emergers and nymphing caddis pupa are all effective. Every fish in the river is looking up and we are having no problem getting trout and salmon to come up for dries until mid-afternoon.
A drag-free drift is always good but at the end of the drift try skittering your caddis upstream a few feet then let it drift back over the same water. I mimics egg laying activity and will often provoke many strikes.

Seven-day forecast 

Water levels are excellent and we have been finding good numbers of fish in every pool in the river. Perfect conditions and lots of hatching make for great fishing.
