Guide Fly Fishing in Maine

Guided fly fishing trips for trout and salmon in the upper Kennebec region.

Full Day Guided Fly Fishing Trips

While rowing a fishing raft or drift boat, the experienced Registered Maine Guides at Kennebec River Angler’s will bring anglers into prime fishing waters. With several different offerings depending on your interest, this is a prime way to gain experience in a variety of fly fishing techniques while accessing Maine’s most remote and beautiful waterways. In their most unique trip, your guide will bring you into the secluded area of the Kennebec River gorge, offering the most distinctive and isolated guided fly fishing expedition in Maine. This adventure is brimming with landlock salmon, brown trout, rainbow trout, and brook trout. Tailored for private groups, with one to two anglers per raft, it provides the ideal experience for both enthusiastic anglers and beginners alike.

Upper Kennebec Gorge

This remote section of river is the showcase trip offered by Kennebec River Anglers, our long-standing partners for guided fishing. We are the only fishing outfitter that guides on this rugged section, as it is a bit of a challenge to access. (This is why it’s so good!)

The Kennebec Gorge is well-known for its exciting Class IV whitewater rapids and rafting trips. Less known is the pristine Maine stream and fly fishing haven for Brook Trout and Salmon that appears when the dam is not releasing those big water flows. It has a hidden gem of a fishery located deep in its bedrock canyon. Hold on, because at some point the water will rise and you and your fishing-turned-whitewater guide will get an exciting raft ride home.

Drift Boat Trips

While rowing Hog Island Boat Works drift boat, guides from our partners at Kennebec River Angler’s provide river knowledge and excellent boat handling to get you into the right position. This is a perfect way to gain confidence in a variety of fly fishing techniques.

East Outlet

Draining Moosehead Lake, the East Outlet has cold water all season and the great fishing to show for it. Landlocked Salmon and Brook Trout along with Class I-III rapids provide the challenge for this postcard day on this beautiful remote river.

Bingham Section of the Kennebec River

One of the few sections of river with a wild, self-sustaining Rainbow Trout fishery. Salmon and Brook Trout are also caught during the day. This river section is a true tail water, with cooler water entering the river from Wyman Dam. The braided river bed offers a variety of opportunities for dry fly’s and nymphs.

Solon Section of the Kennebec River

Known for its Brown Trout, this section also has Salmon, Brook Trout and Rainbow Trout. Weaving its way through some amazing farmlands, this section is as scenic as it is a joy to fish.
