Tonite after supper I ran down to the end of my street to start my bass season - at the junction of the Stillwater and the Penobby many of my favorite pools were blown out because the Stillwater was blasting, almost as if to make up for the wicked low flows and fish kill last week - meanwhile the Penobby was at mid summer levels, so that's where I fished and had some luck - after losing several schoolies and breaking off my one and only alewife fly, I tied on a black leech and proceeded to land 4 stripers and 2 smallies in about an hour - my less than stellar trout season is already a distant memory and I'll be back down there tomorrow - Tight Lines!

love the stripers and smallies. increasingly as my June's get busy with the end of the school year the smallies and schoolie stripers make up a higher proportion of what I target with a fly , and they rarely ever disappoint!! good to see the season is underway for the schoolies!

Brian-

I’m pretty sure the Gulf of Maine Research Institute would like to see some striper data from the Penobscot. Have you considered snapping photos for the CCA-Maine/GMRI Snap-A-Striper program?
