Tips for Fly Rod Fishing at Lake Powell


When trolling for stripers and everything is dialed in like the fish position on the fish finder, wind speed and fish taking the trolled bait, mark that position on the shore line.  Immediately then wind drift back over that area with a fly rod and a full sink line and any shad type fly.  Use a fast retrieve back to the boat.  It is worth several  passes before you resume trolling for the next school of fish.  A great way to breakup the fishing day if you are also at Fly Fisherman at heart.
