  Lake Powell Fish Report – May 26, 2015 Lake Elevation: 3595 Water Temperature 63 – 70 F Lake Powell is rising.  The weather forecast is for rapid warming.  Fish behavior is changing as a result of the changing conditions.  Here is how to keep up with the new reality in the fish world at Lake Powell. Runoff is now busting downstream allowing the lake water level to increase each day.  All that water makes the upper lake muddy, reduces visibility, and points anglers downstream Read More +

    There are three photos today. One shows Wayne Gustaveson holding a few of the walleye caught yesterday. The next shows a green tube jig tipped with a piece of night crawler. Walleye like the taste of live worm and it helps to have a worm on the hook to get the bite. The last picture shows a close up of a walleye being landed with that green tube in its mouth.   Lake Powell Fish Report – April 29, 2015 Lake Elevation: 3590.2 Read More +

Another #hookedonsmiles Rock Springs, WY Some Walleye are being picked off in the mud lines usually fishing for Smallmouth. Smallies are spawning now and it’s a good chance of landing some hefty fish and a good rule of thumb for us is to just keep the deep hooked fish that end up bleeding but return the rest. That’s 6000 fish your killing just to satisfy our palate !””. Stripers confused in some places but some are moving to main channel to spawn but not a Read More +

Lake Powell Fishing Report April 4, 2015 – Capt. Bill McBurney

  Tiffany , WY 4-3-15 One of our #hookedonsmiles Stripers are spotty with Spring weather as water temps fluctuate5-7 degrees depending on winds and cooler nights and days.  If you are spot on any given day, fish can be caught.  I do not expect them to move out toward open water until May.  Time and anchovie fishing will be a wait and see. Smallmouth will be the “go to fish” with any regularity and they have come through the winter adding some weight as well. Read More +

Lake Powell Fishing Report 3-28-15 by Capt. Bill McBurney

Lake Powell Elevation:  3591.04 Water temps will be staying in the 60’s this coming week and by mid April smallmouth and largemouth will be on the nest.  Stripers are wanting to move but the report out of Utah officials has them staying in the backs of Canyons all year at Lake Powell.  I believe some will but the triggering effect to spawn which means out in the Colorado Channel and better bait fishing by May hopefully.  Get your booking in for some great fishing coming Read More +

Lake Powell Fishing Report March 24, 2015 by Wayne Gustaveson

    Photo caption: While fishing for stripers in Warm Creek my lure ticked the bottom momentarily. It was long enough for a small quagga mussel to snap shut on the hook. This is my first shell-hooked catch of a live mussel. If a mussel can bite a rattletrap there is no reason that it could not catch an anchor rope,ski rope or any other object under the water. Make sure to clean, drain and dry your boat when leaving Lake Powell. Lake Powell Fish Read More +
