Sorry for the delay in this report I’ve been spending my time near flowing water. As we come up to the holiday week end things are looking good on the area waters. The lakes are fishing well for the most part except that the fish seem to be hanging out at greater depths than usual, […]

With the predicted summer temps the rest of the week the ice should disappear for another year and water temps should begin to respond.

April 28, 2015

After a week with little forward progress in the weather I am looking for things to start improving.

Welcome to another year of fishing reports. Although the season begins on April 1 not much goes on here that early in the season. The Magalloway and Rapid are both fishable but slow and cold. There are trout from the Rte 16 bridge  and down river but you really have to work for them. Best […]

We received .25 to .50 inches of rain today in the Rangeley area. It was welcomed but will not do much to raise the water levels. I was on the Rapid yesterday, the water temp was 66 degrees with good flow.  We caught many salmon but the trout were scarce with such warm temps. There […]
