Sebago TU Wins National Award

The Chapter has won TU National's Gold Trout Award for 2014! Read about it in our latest newsletter.

Sebago TU Board Survey

The Chapter Board of Directors wish to thank those members who responded to the recent membership survey either on-line or by phone. The results will be published on-line on this website and in the January newsletter.

November's Unique Volunteer Opportunity

State Fisheries Biologist Jim Pellerin has announced that MDIFW will be conducting a redd survey of the Crooked River in November (weather dependent). The Crooked is the source of virtually all of the wild landlocked Atlantic salmon in Sebago Lake, and is a unique asset - close to Portland yet pristine.
Most of the survey will be conducted from canoes and kayaks by State biologists paired with volunteers.
Currently, the potential float days are November 9, 10, 11, 12, 14, and 16. There will be wading/walking sections as well, and weekend volunteer opportunities. This will be a fun project and a great way to be introduced into some of TU's conservation work. If you want to be part of this, please contact Joe Croteau ASAP.

Chapter Meetings

GLS Fishing Presentation: November 18th, 2014 (7pm - 8:30pm)

Jeff McEvoy is a long-time New Gloucester resident who is the owner of the famous Weatherby's resort at Grand Lake Stream. Jeff is a registered Maine Guide himself and is an expert at all of the fishing opportunities in DownEast Maine including fishing for trout and salmon in Grand Lake Stream, fishing for salmon in the large surrounding lakes such as Grand Lake, Big Lake, and many others, including fishing for smallmouth bass in the St. Croix Flowage and a host of other waters. Jeff also takes anglers to Iceland to chase big atlantic salmon.

In his presentation, Jeff will talk about the myriad of fishing possibilities in DownEast Maine, give advice on how to best fish Grand Lake Stream, give information about Weatherby's, and may even throw in a few photos and stories about Icelandic salmon fishing.

We normally meet third Tuesdays October 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.

November Tying Sessions:

When we think of Autumn ... the verse "Over the river and through the wood..." (Linda Marie Child - Over the River) comes to mind.

Another line that comes to mind is  "Oh, Boy, I can hardly wait..." ( a fly tier-Gray Ghosts)

....and the reason you can hard wait is because we launch our Gray Ghost season in November with two top notch fly tiers / fly fishers from the Grand State of Maine:
  • Tuesday, November 11th, Greg Ponte (Mr. TU in Maine) leads us in tying Gary LaFonatine's Marabou Worm (the Superfly) and Cal Bird's Bird's Nest, two flies you will not to be without next season
...and then...

  • Tuesday, November 25th  Dave Martel (yes, that Dave M of posts on FFIM fame) will show you how to tie those pesky parachute posts we all struggle with...Dave will lead us in tying two parachute style flies; a BWO A. K Best Style Parachute and Hans van Klinken's Klinkhammer.
You will be "hammering " the trout in your favorite waters next season with these four flies and you won't believe the technique and ease with which you can turn them out of your vise.
