The Incredible Adventure of Chasing Fish Up the Coast of Maine
UP THE COAST OF MAINE
OF CHASING FISH
Each spring, thousands of fishermen
rush to the east coast to follow the
striped bass and bluefish as they
make their way to Maine.
Bass and bluefish tend to make their way
upstream based upon changes in the weather. As
the water climbs to higher temperatures, the fish
swim up the coast from the Carolinas all the way
to Maine and beyond.
It’s a long chase from the Carolinas up to
Maine, but it’s worth the travel. You’ll get
access to some of the most beautiful fishing
holes in the entire world.
Another spring fishing joy is fly-
fishing for the native Landlocked
Salmon as soon as the ice starts to
melt in early May.
Grand Lake Stream
Grand Lake Stream has
been a famous fly-
since the mid-1800s. Its
Landlocked Salmon (a
cousin of the Atlantic
Salmon) can only be
found there and 3 other
places in Maine.
Consider springing for the crisp, clean air this
spring, and join in on the chase up the east
coast. You’ll enjoy the great outdoors, get access
to the most beautiful fishing holes in the world,
and take part in a centuries-old tradition.
