I haven't seen the regs for this year yet, but was told its a one fish limit, mandatory C&R without taking the fish out of the water.

Anyone fished the Penobscot this year?

Not nearly as many people as last year- same number of fish caught- one- by the same guy who got the only fish last year. One of my buddies had been doing two-a-days for about 2 weeks and seeing fish, but only catching stripers.
