Lake Powell Fishing Report by Capt. Bill April 11, 2015

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 +

Lake Powell Fishing Report – by Capt. Bill McBurney 1-19-15

Either fly The lake has very little traffic and you can explore “hunt” the backs of all the coves and canyons.  The chance for a “whopper” has increased.  The catch can be “nil” at times but for me it’s the hunt and the quiet and a lot more wildlife and sight seeing too. Fly fishing, trolling and structure casting are the few of many approaches with bait fishing starting usually in the spring.  Take advantage of our 10% off early booking for Spring today.  Just Read More +

Lake Powell Fishing Report Spring Forecast by Capt. Bill

Dear Anglers, Positive feed back from our fishing biologist which is very promising with the abundance of bait fish this Winter.  Whatever style of angling, beginner, semi pro-fly fishermen, bait cast, spin or trolling Spring should provide great angling opportunities.  Our newest boat a 26′ triton that cruises 25knots is rigged for that Spring Lake Powell trip of a lifetime.

Winter Fishing Lake Powell with Capt. Bill 11-23-14

  SUMMER 2014 Winter 2014 Fly Rod Fishing Lake Powell Winter fly fishing can be rewarding on Powell but it takes work and perseverance with the patience of finicky trout in shallow water. There is no chumming in the winter and the different water levels of each season make for an interesting hunt to land a striper on a fly. I look forward to the challenge every year for myself as winter provides few clients but the few who do give it a go have a Read More +
