Anglers Catch First Atlantic Salmon in Maine in Seven Years

Beau Peavey, a 22-year-old junior college junior and self-described fishing lunatic, caught the first Atlantic salmon of Maine’s newly reopened season on the Penobscot. “The salmon — a frisky 32-inch 12-pounder that fought back with ‘four jumps and a couple of good long runs’ — was caught after Mr. Peavey abandoned his own flies and used a pink fly created years ago by a now-deceased member of his salmon club.” Pam Belluck in The New York Times.
Kevin Miller also writes in the Bangor Daily News about the event and the newly re-opened season.
