Lake Powell Spring Fishing April 2020

Dear Anglers, We are close to spawn time on the big pond which has the fishing moving toward their nesting and free spawn positions.  Smallies are not real aggressive in the zone yet so fish in that 15029 ft. window.  Look for optimum water temps of 60+ in the coming days.   Stripers are all over the place but not holding position as they still have bait fish to hunt.  It should be fair this year for the bait fisherman and there is some fish moving Read More +

Lake Powell Update 3-23-2020

Lake Powell update:   Lake Powell is open with the cut even open at 20′. It is wide open space out on Lake Powell and a great way to to be out in the “fresh air” . Many people are calling to see if we are open and yes we are. We do not have large groups on our boats. Maximum 5 including Captain (we normally can do 7 but taking great precaution). Hand sanitizer of course and boat is cleaned after any trip thoroughly. Read More +

Lake Powell Fishing Report February 15, 2020

  High points – Low points to Pre-Spring Fishing on Powell   It’s all about the water temps, the moon phase, your approach and then the secret “luck of the draw”. For us locals and guides that finally get to fish “without customers” is the warming of a few consecutive nights and days by as little as a few degrees.  It doesn’t matter if your bait drop shotting, anchovies at a 100′, trolling, jigging or even fly fishing the shallows where stripers will run in Read More +

Lake Powell Fishing Report January 20, 2020 by Capt. Bill

Got out on the Pond (Lake Powell) yesterday to check out the boat and fly-fish and some trolling to test the bite and current water temps (47 degrees).  Caught my first ever Gizzard Shad on a Stripped Clauser Minnow Fly as I was graphing schools of fish in 23’ of water in the back of Warm Creek.  I snagged this one and they are a good fighter like their body design would indicate.  I would put them on par with a Trigger fish.  I was Read More +

Lake Powell Fishing Report January 11, 2020 by Capt. Bill

In a month or two it’s early season for Bass & Stripers – Color is important and I have learned to go with a reddish or deep orange on cranks and grubs.  Mr. Crawdaddy like to be burry up in the winter in our red sand and clay and this is a color change of red and orange and light browns are best! Winter shad Bass & Stripers schools either still shallow or down to a 100′ deep. The shallow schools are in 3-25′ of Read More +

Lake Powell Fishing Report November 9, 2019 by Capt. Bill

Lake Powell Elevation:  3612.53 Water Temperature: 57 in the morning with a high of 62 in the afternoon Bait fishing will remain slow till Spring and Lake Powell is now a “challenge” for us all!.  We currently are having our best opportunities “fly fishing” streamers on the fast sinking lines  (15′ minimum tips) in the deeper waters and a medium slow sink rate is best for shallows.   Like redfish, the wind and sky dictate the opportunity and its the hunt that keeps the thrill going Read More +

Lake Powell Fishing October 20, 2019 by Capt. Bill

Current fishing conditions are a 50/50 toss up on stripers. One day we are catching alot and the next day (zero). Small & largemouth early morning top water and trolling has produced some nice fish 1-3 lbs. The fish are the bonus as this is the best time to see and experience the quest and the grandeur of Lake Powell. A majestic Lake. A few pics from my trip Wednesday!   Tight Lines, Capt. Bill
