Kennebec River, Maine

Kennebec River drains roughly 20% of the state of Maine from Moosehead Lake and its source to Popham Beach there are a total of nine dams.  This promotes several almost separate fisheries and provides cool water in many stretches.  Many species can be fished on this river including Largemouth below Skowhegan, landlocked salmon in the Waterville section, Striped Bass at the mouth, smallmouth can be found, as well as brookies and rainbow.  The hatch chart is an approximation as stream temperatures can vary widely.
