This boils my blood every September!!!!Fishing over stacked up pre-spawn brookies in the Kennebago is disgusting just to get a hero shot! IFW needs to make the upper spawning beds off limits after Aug31.

I couldn't agree more. I've seen the carnage on that river. Simply awful. Five pound brookie "floaters" with #22 disco midges and 7X tippet sticking out of their fins and bellies. Absolutely shameful.

Those Kennebago-strain heritage brook trout are a national treasure and should be STRICTLY protected during the spawn. Including the PRE-spawn staging period.

It is a plain fact, however, that downstream fishing with a non-imitative fly (lure, in the British sense) does not mix comfortably with upstream imitative fishing...I'll stay out of the argument about whether this technique is really fly fishing. In terms of interest, it is for me ahead of most downstream fishing and spinning. And I've already opined that spinning is better than staying at home with the television set.

I couldn't agree more.......And the spawning beds are closed at this time.
Is this how and where either of you think I caught that brookie. If it is ...NOT!!!
This fish was fresh out of the lake and caught at the Tim Pond Rd. bridge pool on a large streamer and straight 16 lb. test leader and released totally unharmed. I have never nor will I ever fish over staging fish in low water with a puney #22 fly. Do either of you have a problem with fishing for any fish on thier spawning run in the Kennebago? Or any other waters for that matter.
If so, good luck telling the sporting camps in the area to close up till hunting season.

Sorry about the spot burn.

Could not agree more. I have stoped posting pics/reports due to thread hijackers here on this site.


Congrats on some GREAT fish!
