  By: Wayne Gustaveson                         April 7, 2010 Lake Elevation: 3619                           Water Temperature 52-56 F   The first largemouth bass has been seen tidying up a nest site.  That heralds the beginning of spring fishing excitement.

Bass spawn every year, but this Read More +

  By: Wayne Gustaveson                    Lake Elevation: 3619                          Water Temperature 51-56 F Days are longer and weather warmer.

Wayne Gustavson (Waynes Words) Fishing Report Richard Laycock, Cheyenne, WY March 24, 2010 Lake Elevation: 3619 Water Temp:    49-54 F Lake level has been stable for two weeks.

  By: Wayne Gustaveson                         March 17, 2010 Lake Elevation: 3619                           Water Temperature 49-53 F     My fishing season started yesterday.

Fishing Report: March 10, 2010

By: Wayne Gustaveson Lake Elevation: 3619   |   Water Temperature: 49-51 F My optimism about great expectations for fishing success in 2010 was given a boost by the catch of a big striper on March 2nd.  Dale Barsness from Duck Creek UT was casting for stripers in Navajo Canyon using a deep diving Norman DD22 lure in 20 feet of murky water.  Dale and friend Bart found a school of willing 4-pound stripers and proceeded to catch fish quickly for an hour while the school was Read More +

Lake Powell Fishing Forecast for 2010

Fish are grinning at Lake Powell.  All of the little necessities for successful fish life are perfect. Photo Caption:  Raquel Dibble, Perry UT, is thrilled to hook another striper out of striper boils last summer.  The excitement of fishing at Lake Powell will begin in March and continue through November. Fishing in 2010 will be just about as good as it can get. Come join us. There is enough snow in the mountains to make the lake level rise just a little bit above the Read More +

Fish Are Biting

Stripers are hanging about 80′ deep in the mid bay or mid channel. For stripers: Drop spoons, stump jumpers or swim baits to get the schools going. Tough to fish for right now with storms passing through. They are hugging the bottom. Crappie are being caught with cold temps. Search tree lines in 10′ of water. Use black, while or yellow crappie jigs. Got questions? Give me a call …Questions are “free”…. Bill McBurney 928.606.0933
