Few Atlantic Salmon Caught in Maine's Month-Long Season

Despite only one or two reports of fish being landed, proponents of Maine’s experimental Atlantic salmon season say the effort to get folks to pay attention to salmon fishing again has paid off. “‘Salmon fishing is about fishing; it’s not about catching,’ said [Maine Atlantic Salmon Commission chairman Dick] Ruhlin, who has 50-plus years of salmon fishing experience. ‘A dedicated salmon angler is more interested in fishing over a piece of water where there is a good probability of a fish being there and presenting a good cast.'” Kevin Miller in the Bangor Daily News.
