Fishing Report - May 17 2019

 

Not much has changed here since last week. Flows remain high although the Magalloway is down low enough to fish in places. The water temp at the Mag yesterday was 38-40 degrees. The road to the upper Magalloway is still not passable as far as I know  but I don't know for sure. I don't think there would be any fish there yet anyway that would make it worth getting stuck. The Kennebago has dropped to a good level and there could be some fish at it's lower section. Small ponds and brook inlets might be the best place to try this week end. Smelt patterns and Wooly Buggers might work. The ice went out on Rangeley Lake on Saturday morning so we are officially released from the grip of winter.

    Heading to Rangeley the first weekend in June to fish for Brookies and Landlocked Salmon. I hope everything will be biting, that is, except for the black flies! I first fished in Rangeley at the ripe old age of 9 in 1964. At that time my Family purchased Badger’s Dodge Pond Camps, and renamed it Evergreen Village.

    I have NEVER gone to Rangeley without stopping into the Rangeley Region Sport Shop where you are always greeted with a smile and a helping hand.

    On occasion, you may luck out and see the fantastic work of Solomon Fast, a Master Carver and painter of Native Brook Trout, adorning a wall.

    Fish on……..!
