I am planning a trip to the Allagash starting September 19 for about a week. I plan to both spin fish and fly fish. I am planning to troll some streamers on the lakes. And, fly cast with attractors (Montreal Whores and Mickey Finns and variants) in the fast water and around inlets and outlets. Anyone have any experience with the Allagash in September?

Paddling, yes. Fishing, not personally. I did watch some friends try to fish the AWW headwaters and the streams entering the Allagash River using both spinning gear with lures and fly rods with flies. A lot of (what the locals call) chub were caught. Apparently not an appetizing fish. Did not see any trout caught, although reportedly they can still be found along the AWW until you reach Allagash Falls. Reportedly the area just below Allagash Falls is a good place to catch muskie.
