Seasonal update of fishing conditions

Time for projects

04/18/16 – I know it’s not Friday but here a post anyway. Hit Bingham yesterday. 2,300CFS for a flow, in April, and 70-degree weather; couldn’t resist.  My brother and I waded in about 11:30am and found 38-degree water. We figured fish wouldn’t be real active so we rigged up with a heavy stonefly and a […]

The Great Hendrickson Hunt – June 13, 2014

06/13/14 – The Hendrickson Hatch has come and gone for the Waterville area.  At least as far as I can tell.  Now it’s time to head North in search of an area where they are still hatching.  As I hoped it might the hatch seemed to stop gradually as you moved up the river.  When […]

The Great Hendrickson Hunt – June 6, 2014

June 6th, 2014 – The Hendrickson Hunt continues.  The Hendricksons are hatching up and down the Kennebec River Valley.  Well, at least from Bingham down to Fairfield. I admit since I discovered them on the Shawmut Section I haven’t gone further North than Bingham to fish them.  They will be stopping soon in Shawmut and […]

The Great Hendrickson Hunt – May 30, 2014

May 30, 2014 – I found the Hendricksons or perhaps I should say they found me.  Weekly I’ve been going over to the Little Ossipee River in search of an early Hendrickson hatch.  Never found it. I found Hendrickson Nymphs but never saw one in the air or on the water.  On my last trip […]

The Great Hendrickson Hunt – May 9, 2014

May 09, 2014 – Wednesday morning I headed for the Little Ossipee river. It was my third trip over I figured I had a good chance of catching a Hendrickson hatch.  Well – I saw Stoneflies, Caddisflies and Mayflies but none of the Mayflies were Hendricksons. Big March Browns like this one danced over the […]

The Great Hendrickson Hunt – May 02, 2014

Well last year’s Hendrickson Hunt was a bust. A weird spring and a bunch of other things (gas money for one) sort of shut it down. But this year I’m at it again and here’s an update. So far I’ve made two trips over to the Little Ossipee River in search of early Hendricksons. I […]
