Default Maine Newbie

Hey everyone! I just posted my introduction in the intro forum, but thought I'd post a couple questions here since it's specific to this region. I am moving to Camden, Maine in May, and I am completely new to fly fishing. I've been doing research since I bought my rod a few days ago, but obviously reading can only get you so far...

If there is anyone willing to give me any tips on fishing the Midcoast region I'd appreciate it. And if there is anyone that would possibly want to meet up sometime that would AMAZING, since I'm gonna be pretty much clueless out in a new area and fishing new species to me... Thanks guys!

Hi,

Welcome to the forum, we have a couple members in the general area but I don't know exactly how close to Camden they are. You could try sending PM's Private messages to (aroostookbasser and Pocono) once you find the message page just start typing the user names into the To: box and they will be offered as suggestions by the system. Contacting people directly will perhaps help you to gather specific information about Maine and also to ascertain whether you will be able to meet up with members there.

posting to your own thread now and then will also be helpful to keep it in the current viewing pages so that other members from the area may spot it and reach out to you.

Good luck and stay with us, we'll help you if it is possible.

Ard

I'm not sure about the Camden area, but you should enjoy fishing in Maine. Make sure you check the regs, as there are quite a few waters with special regs. Before I moved to Alaska, I lived in Southern Maine and fished there, in the Rangley area, and the Kathadin area. You might enjoy fishing the salt water, as you will be right on the coast.

If you are in Freeport, the guys in the fly fishing shop at LL Beans are quite helpful. Eldridge Bros fly shop in Cape Nedick and The Tackle Shop in Portland were great guys when I lived there. (It's been 6 years though)

Feel free to PM me if I can help

Good luck!
Stan

Hey Crohnie are you going to fish salt or freshwater/ Maine has awesome fishing in both. I usually fish fresh while I am there im in the forks/greenville/rockwood area which has unbelievable trout and salmon fishing. Grand Falls on the Dead River is now a trophy landlock salmon fishery. Ive caught salmon over 25'' right under a waterfall. Brassua dam if you hit it right you can catch a big brookie or a 20''+ salmon practically every cast> You got to match the hatch tho that is the trick. You picked a great state to live in and you will love the fishing. Just be sure to learn the double haul and roll cast you will need it for sure!!!!
