Kennebec River Estuary

Tip of the week 

Early starts to your fishing trips are very important now if you're looking for top water action.
With the water temp increasing the stripers are spend more time in deeper water. This means fishing rips and banks. Use your fish finder to locate schools of striped bass.

Seven-day forecast 

Great summer weather this week once we get past Monday's rain. The River is full of bait nd the stripers are feeding early and late in the day.

We're seeing typical July fishing conditions. Early morning surface action followed by fish stacking up on ledges and in rips. Water quality is good and water flow is increasing due to the big full moon tides.
