  1. Default Acadia National Park fishing?

    Hi all I am getting to Acadia/Mount Desert Island today and staying until Saturday. I was wondering if anyone has information on if there is any good brook trout fishing on the island, but more wondering about striper fishing. I am from Maryland and fish for striper regularly but there is virtually no info online about striper fishing Mt desert island for stripers and if it is viable from shore. I have my 9wt with me and also spin tackle to try casting with artificials for striper. Are there striper along points or in inlets this time of year catchable from shore? And is it even worth trying for brook trout?

    I was there for a week a few years ago and try as I might, I didn't find a single striper.
    Figured I catch a few mackerel at least ... nope
    It's very likely that I just didn't have a handle on what was going on.
    Supposedly there's brook trout, but I wasn't even prepared for that

    I fished here a couple of weeks ago... every day for a week
    The water was boiling with adult bunker (menhaden). You couldn't help but snag 'a few
    One day I did witness some stripers blitzing on them, but there was so much bait around that they weren't interested in me.
