Best time of the year for fishing Lake Powell…
All species can be caught year -round, but the water temps on the lake set the consistency for limits. For the largemouth and small mouth angler the action picks up in the Spring (weather permitting due to wind or rain). In the Spring many bass fishing tournaments begin lake wide at this Quarry. April-May are excellent for all bass and at times walleye too. Crappie, Bluegill and Catfish fishing available upon request.
Lake Powell Stripers
Our “go to big fish” table fare with a variety of catch methods is the Striped Bass, a.k.a. Stripers. They were first stocked in the Lake around 1973 and they are the wolf at Lake Powell, being the apex predator on all other species. Due to the size of Lake Powell, the big Stripers are not caught in large numbers like in saltwater on the eastern seaboard. Most will be schoolie size from 1-15 lbs. with the majority in the 22-26” range. If it is a good bait producing season, the Stripers are “king” here for the fight on medium tackle.
Our specialty for pursuing them the past 40 years range from fly fishing Florida style over chum, sight and structure, and top water boils feeding frenzy. They are also excellent at being taken when rigged for trolling, bait fish, bait and spin cast as well.
Our boats are 24’ Tritoon with lots of room for groups, family or a few anglers powered with a Mercury 150. Our walk-around has a small cabin and powered by twin 150’s. Full days, weather and number of anglers will set the boat choice for the day.
