Fall is definitely here with the brilliant displays of color, cooling temperatures and my annual transition to guiding upland bird hunters at Libby Camps. The last few fishing trips of the summer season are behind us and there are a few trout fishing trips ahead but the pace is slowing a lot.
No clients today. Instead I made a trip downriver hoping to purchase a few lobsters for supper and spend a little time fishing. As soon as I arrived in Thomaston Harbor it was clear that no one would be hauling traps today. Blowing pretty hard out of the southwest with a falling tide. A recipe for rough sea conditions in the Saint George. The sky this morning tells the entire story.
I marvel every year at how September in Maine is so underutilized. The weather is near perfect temperatures warm but not hot, usually dry with clear blue skies. Fishing this morning was delightful actually caught so many stripers between 24 and 28 inches that my arm hurt when I quit. One of these fish is shown in the photograph but I have to apologize for the quality.
