I fished right off the highway under the bridge before you take the left turn to head towards St George today with my dad, caught 40 smallies 8-15" in length in two hours, what a blast.

That is the bridge just before the turnoff at Thomaston Corner. I think it's Rte.3.

Correct, water levels were much higher than Google Streetview shows, there was a nice little swirling pool under the bridge. Dropped a worm in and let it float around and caught a fish almost every cast.

I fly fished it with a friend a few weeks ago one evening and we were catching some nice bass out of that swirl.

It wouldn't hurt to take a few of those bass out of the river. Quite tasty and plentiful. Plus they are a lot of fun in fast water.

Not going to lie, my dad and I each bagged a couple 14" inch bass and pan fried them for lunch after we got back home. Breaded and fried in butter, they were delicious!! Bag limit is 0 now so we knew it was the last day to get a meal lol.

 

I am not a catch and release only fisherman, we've fried meals out of bass, pickerel, brookies, and perch this year..but 90% of our catch is released.

I went to this spot after work and fished maybe 30 minutes yesterday had a couple of nibbles but did not catch anything.  Fisherman to blame I think.  I used senkos wacky rigged.

I was under the impression that parts of the Mag River are Fly Fish Only, where is the cut off?

There is nothing in the rules book about fly fishing only in the Mag river anywhere that I could find. I just brought up the regs book online and did a text search for it and it's not listed anywhere as fly fishing only.

You're right, I was mistaken. I knew I read something about it, but from the mouth upstream to route 3 bridge, is guide required waters for non-resident anglers. That is what I had read. *doh*
