Available from May 1 - December 10.
Species You Fish for by Season:
The season starts in late April for early season trout fishing, gradually shifting to bass in freshwater. Stripers arrive in our river by mid-June and stick around until Labor Day. Freshwater fishing picks up on bass in September with trout again available from October until early December.
Region/Terrain Where You Fish:
Mid-coast Maine, covering both salt- and freshwater opportunities. Saltwater fishing is primarily on the Saint George River chasing stripers and the occasional bluefish. Freshwater is primarily for smallmouth bass in lakes and ponds by boat to provide the best opportunities for success. Trout (primarily brook trout) are available during cooler water periods in early spring and fall.
Typical Weather by Season:
Early spring and fall can be quite chilly; think warm clothing at that time of year. Rain gear adds a layer of wind protection. Cold rain and wind are distinct possibilities during this part of the year with daytime highs sometimes only in the 40s.
Summer days start out cool and frequently foggy with temperatures in the upper 50s. By midday, the fog is gone and, with the sun, temperatures get up to 70 or even 80 degrees. Even in summer, some days can be very cool.
