Lake Powell Fishing Report June 1, 2020

Lake Powell Elevation:  3605.05 Water Temp:  78.8   Smallmouth are the dominate species right now on Yamat tubes in perssimmon, chartreuse and light crawfish colors 1/8 oz and 1/4 oz Yamamoto jig weights.  Water is rising fast now and the fish are not always tight to the shoreline, so fish further out from the rocky points to target the full body of water to submerged structures. Stripers – Some small males will be caught while targeting smallmouth on points but bait fishing is slow with Read More +

Lake Powell Fishing Update 5-12-2020

    What’s Up with the Stripers?????   Answer? No one really knows. A probable theory might be they have ben gluttening on bigger gizzard shad all last year and through the winter as well and stripers have a tendency to set out a few months and live their their “fat” build up from gorging. If a hunger moment happens, there is an abundance of shad nearby to put them back to full satisfaction mode. We can find them, mark their depths and chum them Read More +

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 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 +
