Kennebec River Estuary

Tip of the week 
Techniques 

July is when I spend half of my time on the beaches... This year the River is fishing so good my trips to the beach have been fewer than normal but when I've gone the action has been worth the 12 mile run. So if you would like a break from the micro stripers in the River go to the beach!

Seven-day forecast 

Typical mid summer conditions. light winds and some afternoon showers foretasted.

Conditions 

Water temps in the river range from 65*-75*. The beaches are around 60* tons of bait everywhere so the stripers have full bellies by mid day. The best bite is really early and again at dusk. But, with some patience you'll catch fish from late morning through the afternoon in the deeper water.
