Haven't seen anybody trying but that doesn't mean they're not here. The birds all seem to be waiting. I work just downstream of the dam. About the only signs of life so far is the 12,000 Atlantic salmon the Feds dumped in a couple weeks ago. Poor little guys didn't know what to do outside of their concrete tank.

Sunday went out to 2KR.
Saw a couple of boats there but nothing.
Cruising up the Pscat, saw lots of birds but no fish.
Any day now......

Elvers are back, hearing ghost stories of stripers in the Saco, I'm sure they're there. I haven't tried yet, still getting the boat set up and being a shade tree mechanic this weather is not helping.

I have been pondering checking a couple of the popular haunts around portland. I wonder if it is worth breaking out the grundens to go out and get my line wet... I am sure that there is life here and there around PFEX or The State, will look into it tomorrow possibly...

I will share the wealth with my brothern... I actually picked up a couple of different tree style rigs at the walmart in falmouth last week that I want to give a shot. I have never used something with circle hooks with out being on a bigger game boat so I wanna see how this type of tree works for mack. Will pass on that which I can.

 

Take care and tight lines

Went out yesterday and gave it a whirl on a rare day off during the week. Took a quick look at the Saco dam but didn't make any casts.....not my decision, my buddy was driving and it was on our way to where we were headed. Didn't see any birds working or signs of anything in the water, but we didn't stay too long either. We went down to Camp Ellis, my buddy with the fly rod and myself with a small assortment of lures, but we didn't see much there either. Took several casts on both the river and bay side, Storm rubber shads, 9" black over white Sluggo (unweighted) and a red/white bucktail tipped with an Auger Tail all produced nada. On a brighter note, the 24 hour bait machine at Chevy's seems to be up and working already, though I think the sign said he's gonna be out of worms for a few more days. Good luck out there fellas, sorry I don't have more to report, but it should be anytime now before we're all into fish.

Well I got some casting practice in today, I guess late afternoon early evening isn't the best time to try and fish PFEX or The State here in portland. I could be wrong but I think fishing Macks has more to do with sunlight more over than tide. I have always had far better luck when the sun was over head than when the sun was at my back. Today proved this theory a bit more, but then again this is fishing and not catching right. Will keep folks posted on what portland waters bring in the coming days/weeks.

Went to Cape Porpoise yesterday. Crazy windy. Didn't fish, but studied the water. Saw nothing. I'm going to drive around the Kennebunkport breakers. I'm not allowed to fish as it is Mother's day and my wife carries my manhood in her purse. I'll let you know if I see anyone catching anything.
