Carp Fishing in Maine

Contact Capt.Eric Wallace for more info on Maine Carp Fishing ph 207-671-4330

Carp are a well-established species in Merrymeeting Bay and the Kennebec main stream to the dam in Augusta, as well as the other Merrymeeting Bay tributaries to the first upstream dam. They exist in large schools and may be the most abundant large fish species in the river. Often they can be seen in the shallows of the extensive rice flats of the bay as they feed and spawn during spring, summer and fall months. Despite five to seven feet of tidal fluctuations, Merrymeeting Bay and the many large coves of the main river seem to be ideal carp habitat. Merrymeeting Bay carp routinely reach weights of 10 pounds and get as heavy as 15 pounds.
