Sight Fishing Casco Bay Maine
Portland & Southern Maine
When tides and sun match up with our perfect summer water temps, Sight Fishing in the Portland Maine area can be outstanding! Ideally situated on the northern terminus of the legendary annual migration of Striped Bass along the Atlantic Coast. Casco Bay and the Portland area is proving to be one of the more consistent summer fisheries for Striped Bass north of Cape Cod, and arguably one of the better kept secrets in East Coast Saltwater Fly & Light Tackle Fishing.
Baitfish move further into the rivers for spawning, many of the Stripers that followed the baitfish north move off the river mouths and onto the flats and estuaries. It's here that you'll find an incredibly unique and productive Striper Fishery, one that is ideal for the shallow-water sight fishing enthusiasts who enjoys casting a fly on clear water sandy flat or chasing v-wakes on a mud flat in a foot of water.
Water temps throughout the summer and larger tides are two of the unique attributes that make this such a fun mid summer fishery, but what makes its special? It's the food that Stripers can find in the shallows, crabs, shrimp, baby lobster add in small fin fish in a water temp that is still in the Striped Bass's active feeding comfort zone, all has the making a fun technical shallow water fishery.
Light Tackle Skinny water is not just for the Fly Angler, Lite Tackle Anglers will enjoy working a soft plastic with a spin rod along the shoreline structure and fishing surface plugs to active feeding fish.
