This week marks the end. Temps have turned the corner and lock jaw has set in for real. The fish we have been lucky enough to catch have been lethargic at best. Our personal gauge is an air temp of 40 degrees. Add in water temps in the mid thirties, anchor ice, non existent hatches and you've got marginal conditions at best. Calling it for now, unless things change dramatically.
For the future posts will contain gear reviews, technical information and general guide melon spewage. Let us know if you would like to see anything in particular. Thanks for stopping in.
I started this company as an independent guide who could provide a higher level of service. I began my career as a river guide in The Forks. After a season on the Kennebec and Dead rivers I moved over to the West Branch of the Penobscot where I spent six seasons guiding and fishing those waters.
Before long stories of other rivers and ranges beckoned. I lived and played in Montana, Idaho, Wyoming, New Mexico, Utah, California and Alaska.
As great as waters like The Henry's Fork, The Missouri, The Gros Ventre and Flat Creek were I always knew I would return to live in Maine. With the amount of moving water in this state I am continually finding new places to explore.
Guiding for me is still as fresh today as it was when I first started. I can't think of a more rewarding occupation.
