In western Maine lies a river that has its origin in Canada, it flows gently to form Little Kennebago, and Kennebago Lakes, it continues its flow to its destination Cupsuptic Lake. The river is home to landlocked salmon, and brook trout. I have fished this river in both summer and fall, with fall being prime with the lake runs of salmon and trout. There are many pools and riffles that can be fished and to float and fish this river from a canoe is awesome. The one pool that has given me much pleasure is Steep Bank. Its given this name because of the steep bank thats leads to the river.
The river holds trout all summer, I'm not certain if the salmom stay or return to the lake. In summer I have taken nice brook trout on caddis patterns, and Hornbergs. The fall also produces brook trout on caddis, and streamers, along with some sizeable salmon. I have never taken a salmon or brook trout on a streamer in this river, they have come on the caddis and Hornbergs.
Every year this river gives up some very large brook trout, perhaps some day I'll be fortunate to be one of the lucky anglers to achieve this.
Although I have never caught a fish on a streamer, I designed this one for this beautiful river.
