Lake Powell Fishing Report 5-24-13

Lake Powell Elevation: 3597.65

Water Temp: 67-68

Fishing patterns about to change at summer heat is finally turning the lake over and plankton saturates the lake with its green emerald hew. Stripers over 2 lbs will now suspend under the feeding schools of Schoolies size fish as the pursue had larva and hatching Shad lake wide.

Early morning top water action and evening is in the mix as well and larger fish can be caught then as well along your shade lines before the sun hits the water. bigger Stripers will still fall for bait and lures at deeper depths where water drops off deeply. deep water baiting will help and relieving air gas out of their bladder will help if not saving a particular fish ..

I look for the Intake and main channel to hold fish all summer unless oxygen from lowered water forces them onward will have to Waite and observe. Small Mouth and Large mouth will head deeper as well so fish early go rest and fish late for best results lake wide.
