Upstream from the town landing in Thomaston, this river is swift and narrow. Downstream from the town landing, the river widens out and becomes more like a sheltered part of the ocean than a river. Opportunities for fishing from shore are limited except at the town landing. Key Species: striped bass, bluefish, mackerel possible. In late May, school stripers enter the river and fishing is good all the way upstream to the bridge over Maine Route 90. Most anglers troll with Rapalas or Rebels. Larger fish, some reaching or surpassing the legal length limit of 36 inches, enter the river in July. When menhaden are running, local anglers take bluefish from the town landing by using sections of menhaden as bait.
