Welcome to Coastal Fly Angler, Maine's premier Fly and Light tackle Guide Service and Reports by Capt. Eric Wallace
MAINE's Casco Bay is ideally situated on the northern terminus of the legendary annual migration of striped bass along the Atlantic Coast. It’s proving to be one of most consistent fisheries for striped bass north of Cape Cod, and arguably one of the best kept secrets in East Coast Saltwater Fly and Light Tackle Fishing.
The southernmost end of Casco Bay touches the vibrant city of Portland, Maine, and the mouths of the Presumpscot and Royal rivers. These river mouths attract spawning bait fish, and the stripers follow. After the bait fish move into the rivers for spawning, the stripers move off the river mouths and onto the flats and estuaries of Casco Bay. It's here that you'll find an incredibly unique and productive fishery, one that is ideal for shallow-water fishing enthusiasts, who enjoys casting the fly on clear water sandy flat or working a soft plastic with a spin rod along the shoreline structure.

Our guide leans a bit forward as he stops poling the shallow-draft flats boat—yes, the same kind of craft you see in the Florida Keys, the Bahamas, Mexico, and Belize—and points the long pole a little to port.
“Fish at 10 o’clock,” he says in a low voice. just loud enough to be heard over the freshening breeze, “about 40 feet.”
Fly-angling legend Lefty Kreh and I are in Casco Bay in the Atlantic Ocean just off Yarmouth, Maine, and the quarry is not bonefish, tarpon, or permit, but striped bass. Yarmouth is above Portland and below Freeport, and our guide, Eric Wallace, often launches here in summer when the stripers are in the shallow flats where angler can sight-fish to them.
