Chapter Annual Meeting and Elections

The Chapter will elect 2015's board and officers at our meeting Tuesday, December 16 at 7:00 p.m. at American Legion Post 62, 17 Dunn Street in Westbrook. [corrects earlier post]


Sebago TU Board Survey

The Chapter Board of Directors wish to thank those members who responded to the recent membership survey. We received 63 responses and now have some fresh ideas about how to better serve our some 600 members. Some of what we are now looking to do:

  • Better integration/communication with IF&W - have them speak at more of our meetings
  • Even more focus on conservation efforts
  • Better ways for members to connect and socialize with each other
  • Easier ways to volunteer for projects and communicate.

Lou Zambello has put together a one-page summary of all the results. CLICK HERE to read it - good stuff!


Crooker River Redd Survey

Thanks to all who put in the work to support Sebago TU's most significant stream survey effort ever. Look for preliminary results in our January newsletter. Our work could help make all Sebago Lake salmon wild fish in the future.

Chapter Meetings

GLS Fishing Presentation: December 16th, 2014 (7pm - 8:30pm) [corrects earlier post]
Lucas St. Clair catches trout.

Since it became illegal to drive logs on Maine's rivers back in the 70's, we've been living in a fool's paradise: nearly unlimited access to Maine's privately-owned forests for next to nothing. As Maine's paper industry continues to fade, the land is now worth more as real estate than working woodlands. Change is coming!
Fisherman/hunter Lucas St. Clair is president of the board of Elliotsville Plantation Inc., the company Roxanne Quimby formed to manage the 100,000 acres she owns in northern Maine. Come hear and discuss their vision for the future of Maine’s north woods.



We normally meet third Tuesdays October at 7:00 p.m. through March at American Legion Post 62, 17 Dunn Street in Westbrook.


Contact Program Chair Dave Bowie with any ideas or suggestions you might like to see for future chapter meetings.




Gray Ghosts Fly-Tying Club



First Parish Church, Yarmouth

Old tiers, folks who want to learn, come join us with Maine guide and nationally recognized Master Fly Casting Instructor Rod McGarry. Tying gear available for those who need it. We meet November through March on most second and fourth Tuesdays 6:30 to 8:30.

December Update

Steve Brann (Best of Show Award winner in the Cumberland Fair Fly Tying competition) was scheduled to lead us in tying two very productive flies for our Maine waters on December 9, but we had to postpone that session due to the storm. When we reschedule him, he’ll start with The Brown Owl and then share his effective variations for Gartside’s Soft Hackle Streamer. Tying gear available for those who need it.

Watch for our follow-on dates: Jan 13 and Jan 27.
