Video: Fishing the Moose River with Master Maine Guide Russ Theriault
January 18, 2017
In late May of 2016, New England Fishing host Tom Richardson traveled north to Rockland, Maine, home of 80-year-old Russ Theriault, a registered Maine guide who has been fishing the Moose River and Moosehead Lake 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, the 2 men chat on the dock of Theriault’s riverfront home, recounting the veteran guide’s many days on the river and the changes he has witnessed over the years.
