Winter Fishing Lake Powell with Capt. Bill 11-23-14

  SUMMER 2014 Winter 2014 Fly Rod Fishing Lake Powell Winter fly fishing can be rewarding on Powell but it takes work and perseverance with the patience of finicky trout in shallow water. There is no chumming in the winter and the different water levels of each season make for an interesting hunt to land a striper on a fly. I look forward to the challenge every year for myself as winter provides few clients but the few who do give it a go have a Read More +

October 29, 2014 Lake Elevation: 3605 Water Temperature 65-69 F By: Wayne GustavesonStriped bass annual migration is now almost complete.

Lake Powell Fishing Report by Wayne Gustavson 4-24-13

Lake Elevation: 3597 Water Temperature 53-60 F It’s a typical year as bass move on nest sites as the water warms and then pull off as water cools. If the home cove is protected from wind it stays warm and bass spawn.  If strong wind cools water then spawning is delayed until the next calm period. The big selling point for coming sooner rather than later to fish for spawning bass is lake level. The lake is stabilizing, ready to start filling. Sight fishing is Read More +
