Maine Fly Fishing – The Mighty Green Drake Hatch!


Maine Fly Fishing for wild brook trout in the North Woods of Maine is truly a magical Maine Fly Fishing experience. Fly Fishing for Wild Native Brook Trout and in the North Maine Woods the month of July is a phenomenal world class fly fishing adventure. Primarily due to the likes of a Mayfly, not just any Mayfly. An insect known as the Hexagenia limbata, the mighty GREEN DRAKE! Measuring up to two inches long this is TROUT CANDY!

The Green Drake is one of the most geographically widespread mayflies in North America. A vastly important part of the food chain in many clear water lakes and ponds. Our Green Drakes are over sized burrowing May Flies, one of Maine Fly Fishing’s most popular hatches which consistently bring the largest brook trout to the surface. Here in the North Maine Woods THIS IS NOT a sporadic source of fish protein. It is literally a vicious feeding frenzy!

When the conditions are right you will see the Maine North Woods Wild Brook Trout of your dreams gorging themselves on the massive Green Drakes. Promising or promoting hook numbers is not something we do as these are Wild Heritage Water Native Brook Trout. That being said our 2017 season had occasion to produce more than 50 fish to hand in a three hour period for two anglers during the hatch. Truly amazing World Class Fly Fishing for beginner and expert alike!
