Lake Powell Fishing Report June 16, 2019

    Lake Powell Elevation:  3597.55 Water Temp: 71 degree Water inflow is peaking at a foot a day and catching can be awesome one day and slow the next.  At this time, we have 2 schools that are still taking bait and one of them is 50 miles up Lake Powell so a full day charter is recommended.  The closer school is a 1/2 day charter.  Two week from now that could all change.  But we keep the reports fresh for what is working currently. Smallmouth Read More +

Lake Powell Fishing June 9, 2019

per (jail birds) are the dominate target fish in the main channel at Lake Powell. The morning bite till noon is the best for action on bait. Keep in mind that the Stripers is a Salt Water predator species that roams the lake and most anglers visiting night find an agreeable school willing to be chummed but then fall short the next day wondering where they went.   Here are few factor I have learned: 1st scout up to 1/4 mile in either direction and Read More +

Lake Powell Fishing Report 5/19/19 by Capt. Bill

  Fishing will be best between Spring Colder/Windy front prevailing. Trolling spawning points and baiting if fish have moved deeper. Patience is the only way and catch numbers will vary. Smallmouth and largemouth bass will be slower until weather stabilizes. The remainder of May and all of June are tops for the Fly Rodder as well. A fast sink 15′ tip and 8′ flurocarbon leader and tippett – heavy eye clausers 3-4″ (red and blue are the secret. The other secret are knowing where the Read More +

Lake Powell Fishing Report April 28, 2019 by Capt. Bill

Fish are biting extremely well and all “species” and all methods of fishing including fly fishing. Water temps are ideal with low-mid 60’s.   If you are planning a trip, book soon even into Fall as we are booking out fast this year with our regular fishing trips and our Lake Powell Experience trip (half fishing – half sight seeing). For those who want the best of both worlds. Castle Rock cut is still not open but with the warmer temps we should start to Read More +

Lake Powell Fishing April 20, 2019

So !   Bait fishBait fishing is excellent right now and Florida style Fly Fishing for stripers “chumming them up from the deep” is also great right now.   Low water now mean I have 1 hour each way to go to fish Navajo Canyon so fish cleaning is up to the customer on 1/2 day trips. Full day trip there is more time in the 8 hour window to prepare your catch.   When bringing your boat, be sure to let your guide know Read More +

Lake Powell Spring Fishing Report March 28, 2019

It’s looking like the striper bait bite will be better than last year as schools are setting up early in the main channel.  Some schools will be a better quality than other schools as far as size, fight and edibility goes.  For me, I prefer to troll when looking for a quality stripers.  Having allot of anglers on Lake Powell early helps to thin out the skinny ones too end by June.  This means bigger and fatter fish in deeper water are the target on Read More +

Lake Powell Fishing Report January 20, 2019 from Capt. Bill

Happy New Years, I ventured out on the Pond yesterday to check out some motor work and scope some fish.  Water temps are at 44 degrees and most stripers were 50-75 ft. down and tight lipped with trolling.  I didn’t try any jigging,  but plan to after the next cold front.  Castle Rock Cut channel which saves boaters 24 miles to head up lake is now dry and will not have water till June when the run off from Colorado start to break loose.  So Read More +

Lake Powell Fishing Report November 11, 2018

Lake Powell Fishing Report 11-11-18 Lake Powell Elevation: 3587.88 When the nightly colder winds blow and the days are calm…that’s the best time to “fly fish” for stripers especially if you can hit the water on that 2nd, 3rd, or 4th following day until the next cold front. First day after is the usually very tough so sometimes it a fishing day but not a good catching day. We have about 3 weeks left for using Castle Rock Cut which get us to our fishing Read More +
