Guided Maine Striper Fishing

Maine Striper Fishing

Experience Maine saltwater striper fishing like never before: with a Master Maine Guide and US Coast Guard Licensed Captain who’s an expert on the area’s geography, wildlife, and history.

You’ll learn new striper fishing skills while gaining an appreciation for the history and culture of the region. We’ll make the most of your time on this trip whether it is a full-day or a few hours.

Where and When

We’ll fish the Saint George River in Thomaston Harbor, then onto the hidden fishing spots that are only known to locals. You’ll see the beauty of Maine’s rockbound coast painted by the Wyeth family not far from Camden, Rockport, and Rockland.

Striper fishing is best in the early morning or evening when the light is low since this is when the stripers are most active near the surface of the water. Mostly, we’ll catch school fish and occasionally find one over five pounds. A Master Maine Guide can show you the specific flies and lures to use to have a better chance of catching one of these coastal beauties. Stripers can be caught with spinning gear or by casting a fly. Either way the equipment that we need will be on board.
