The proof is in the net. Rich and Laurie Boucher had a fine day of fall fishing conditions on the East Outlet of the Kennebec this September 6th, just a couple of days after the river got a shot of water. The 19″ salmon in the photo is just one of many salmon we caught plus a couple of brookies. We found fish in all the right places throughout the river.
Water has been running on the Roach and the East Outlet for about a week now and will start flowing on the Moose before long.
Fall streamer patterns are always a good choice but nynphing and swinging soft hackle wet flies also work well.
With night time temperatures predicted to be in the high 30’s the next couple of nights conditions will only get better.
