Thanks for the opportunity to chime in FishMedic. I've been fishing up there for a few decades. A few suggestions.

-Up there brookies and ll salmon our king.
-Bring your longer fly rods.
-Flows(on applicable rivers) and water temps. dicate how you will do. Be flexible. Give a river/pond an hour you will know if they r biting, or not, move on.
-Visit Maine Guide Shop web site to research and when you first get into town. Dan/Penny are straight shooters and have the daily pulse.
-Typically that time of year, streamers less so, caddis and mayfly hatches prevelant.
-Don't forget to try this areas remote trout ponds (rent a canoe on the cheap) early AM and PM. Drakes will start in latter part of your trip. My bride still loves me paddling her around as i fish...

Should be some big golden stones up there that time of year - size 8-10 stimulators will do as a dry for a dry dropper rig with a bh ptn or prince nymph on the dropper in 16-18.

Great for fishing pocket water.

Bass are not a problem on the big rivers, it's the juvi salmon and brook trout that suffered on smaller streams like the lower magalloway.

Congrats on the wedding.

Most of the fishing in my childhood was done at a warmwater lake in Maine, for perch, pickerel and smallmouth bass. Smallies were particularly prized.

But they aren't native to Maine, and they only really belong in warmwater lakes and streams. I think that the introduction of bass into places like the Rangeley Lakes region and the Magalloway is a tragedy. And those introductions are all very recent- within the last 20-30 years.

I don't recall the Penobscot being known as a smallmouth river, either. I think that was recent.

And now the quack "bucket biologists" have introduced northern pike into some Maine lakes, including the Sebago system, which holds one of the hallmark strains of landlocked salmon.

The phenomenon of amateur introductions of non-native species enrages me, at this point. By now, it should be obvious how easily it can get out of control.

I was just surfing, and these two items caught my eye ... hon-hunt-florida-20130121
