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 for the Fly Rodding.

On spin tackle, the hunt is the same but smaller fish take it mostly.  A lot of strikes and misses as they are fussy and full with this years bait influx.  Streamers stripping fast will be best for now to hopefully connect with a 5+ – 26″ striper.

Tight Lines,

Capt. Bill
