The regular fishing season is over and ended on a good note for most fisherman. We saw a lot of satisfied customers the last days of the season and even saw a few pictures. Now that October is here the crowds are gone and the rivers are quite. There are still plenty of places open to wet a line in the Rangeley area. Upper Dam is the most popular destination in the late season and is usually very productive. The flow is low at 400 cfs, but there showed be plenty of trout and salmon making their way into the pool. Be prepared for any situation when you go there as the fish are often feeding on the surface even in Oct.. Nymphing is very effective using small pheasant tails and attractors.
These waters are often open in October, and even some in November for late season fishing. Always check the regulations and enjoy the fall opportunities:
