Lake Powell April Fishing Tip April 4, 2015

Dear Anglers, My tip for fly fishing (#flyfishing) stripers in back of canyons at Lake Powell.  I like a fast 7-8 wt. rod wit a fast sink 15′ sink tip, 4′ leader and 15 lb. tippet and 3″ crawfish flies with chartreuse and white clauser flies.  If the stripers are feeding, you want a fast retrieval and a tarpon set (scissor set) and watch that rod tip when your landing so not to high stick the rod tip. Tight lines, Capt. Bill    

Lake Powell Fishing Report Spring Forecast by Capt. Bill

Dear Anglers, Positive feed back from our fishing biologist which is very promising with the abundance of bait fish this Winter.  Whatever style of angling, beginner, semi pro-fly fishermen, bait cast, spin or trolling Spring should provide great angling opportunities.  Our newest boat a 26′ triton that cruises 25knots is rigged for that Spring Lake Powell trip of a lifetime. Current Winter angling is a 50/50 proposition but offers an experience like no other with little or zero boat traffico n the water (weather permitting Read More +

It took about 20 minutes to get there Read More +

Bill’s Corner 2-26-12- Where are the best stripers right now?

Often I am asked during off seasons where is good fishing right now?  I always try to give my customers since 1979 the best information even if it is not where I am guiding.  A “good guide” should do this. Southwestern AZ Lakes like Havasu and Mohave are good fly an spin opportunities right now between Spring storm fronts for Fly fishing.  Try the south end of Havasu around Havasu Springs with a 7-8 wt rod and 15-20 sink trip 200 grain line with a Read More +
