Re: Time to try Maine!!
Passed Umbagog on our way up. Fished a bit 2 days. Problem was most waters were closed to trout fishing due to spawning season. Had to fish bigger waters that were open for catch and release, which is what we do anyway. I don't like big water, so streams were out for us. We did however get into the birds!! Flushed 29 grouse, shot at 14 and bagged 9. Saw 8 woodcock, shot at 4 and bagged 3. Our oldest English Setter was amazing!! He stayed inside 35 yards and circled the woods nicely for us. Had a few productive points on his first grouse and doodles!! Took the Ithaca Flues 20g, 2 1/2" with 26" barrels and the Franchi AL 48 Super 28g. Looking forward to hunting birds there again. I'll post pix when I move them to my cpu.
