Taking my first two week vacation and visiting maine for the first time. Coming in mid July. Not the best time I know but spending one week each in the places I mention above. Would love to catch a maine Brookie and smallmouth but i am flexible. Any pointers on what to fish for and where (not looking for honey holes just a little insider advice) would be appreciated. Local fly shop recommendations that sort of thing. Will be lucky to fish a full day as the family a not really into it. I've read about the andro, Sunday and wild rivers near bethel. Any advice on them? Thx in advance.

Location: Near the tying bench
All of the local brooks hold wild brookies in that area. Most will be small. Bring a small 4 wt and expect a big brookie to be 8". They're also going to be skittish, as the water will be running clear and presumably low by then. The flatter sections of the Andro are good smallie water. Good luck.

Thanks for the info. I don't expect any real size, just want to wet a line on the family vacation.
