Beau Peavey Season on the Penobscot

September 18, 2007 By: Marshall Cutchin

Maybe they should just go ahead and rename the experimental Atlantic salmon season on Maine’s Penobscot after the angler who seems destined to prove the naysayers wrong. Beau Peavey has caught and released the first salmon there for the second year in a row. Perhaps it has something to do with beginning salmon fishing at age 3. “‘[The first fish] was just too big. It was a 12-pound fish and I was not much bigger myself, so it didn’t pan out,’ Peavey said with a chuckle.” John Holyoke in the Bangor Daily News.
