Moosehead Lake regionalfishing report

    GREENVILLE — “The good news in the Moosehead region is that flows are up,” says IFW Fisheries Biologist Tim Obrey, who said the gates on the Roach River are now open, and flows are in the 200 cfs range.

    On the West Branch of the Penobscot River below Seboomook, flows also have been increased, with water at the 800 cfs level. Flows on the East Outlet and the Moose River have also increased.
    “Usually within a week of the flows increasing, the fish start to move in,” says Obrey, who says that by the second week of September the fishing is usually pretty good.
    There also have been some good reports of fishing on Moosehead Lake, with decent catches of both salmon and trout. Anglers still need to fish deep on the big lake to land these fish.
