Fishing Lines: Maine’s rivers – where the fish always bite

Greetings, fellow fishermen!

Between now and when the water starts to cool back down is the low point of the summer fishing season. The trout are just trying to find cool, oxygenated water, so you have to troll deep to find them and hope they will bite. Even bass fishing in ponds and lakes slows down, and if you are fishing them, you will want to get up early or stay out late.

Fly-fishing legend Lefty Kreh said: “Smallmouths abound throughout the Unites States in cooler rivers but my favorite place to seek them is in Maine.” He goes on to say: “Fortunately, many Maine resident anglers revere the trout and ignore or look down on smallmouths. I have fished trout all over … but for me a trout can’t hold a candle to smallmouth bass. This disdain by Mainers for smallmouths has resulted in many fine smallmouth rivers being ignored.”
