Hi there.

Welcome to my awesome fishing blog.

I'm a devoted four-season freshwater fisherman who chases trout, salmon and bass year-round on Maine's numerous ponds, lakes, streams, and rivers. I love ice fishing, open-water fishing, trolling, and fly fishing. I fish from shore, in waders, from my canoe or a powered boat.

Read on if you want to learn more about out-of-the way fishing spots or seek to increase your odds of catching more salmonids or bass.

My motto is "If I fish it, I blog about it!"

The Kennebec River flowing through downtown Madison and Anson in Somerset County (see the Maine Atlas and Gazetteer map 20 B4) is held back by the Anson and Abnaki dams, before it becomes free-flowing again. It is the free-flowing stretch of the river below the most downstream of these two dams (i.e., the Abenaki Dam) which is the focus of my attention this afternoon. I access the Madison side of the river by driving north on Route 201A into Madison. About half a mile before reaching downtown, I turn left unto Father Rasle Road, cross the unused railroad tracks, and park my car on the sandy shoulder. The river is flowing to my right down a steep slope. My goal is to drop down to the river, wade upstream, and fish for about half a mile up to the hydroelectric dam.
