Lake Powell Fish Report – July 19, 2016 Lake Elevation: 3620 Water Temperature: 77 – 83F Stripers have moved out of the main channel and toward the backs of canyons. The move indicates that the shad food source has been well used in open water of the channel and bays. Slurping stripers have been relentless in pursuit of small newly-hatched shad.   Those shad that have survived are seeking a sanctuary in the brush that now lines the shoreline.  Shad have a better chance of avoiding predation if Read More +

Lake Powell Fishing Spring Forecast 2016 from Wayne Gustaveson

Lake Powell Spring Forecast 2016 Lake Powell sportfish were warm and happy when tucked in for the winter in 2015.  Shad production has been at peak levels for the past two summer seasons.
