Video: Fishing the Moose River with Master Maine Guide Russ Theriault

In late May of 2016, New England Fishing host Tom Richardson traveled north to Maine’s Moose River, home of 80-year-old Russ Theriault, a registered Maine guide who has been fishing the river since he was 4.

In this video, the gracious, soft-spoken Theriault takes Tom fishing along the Moose’s upper stretch in his vintage Record wood canoe, for a date with one of the river’s famous landlocked salmon.

Later, Tom sits down to chat with Theriault on the dock of his riverfront home, where the two discuss the veteran guide’s many days on the river and the changes he’s witnessed over the years.
