Lake Powell Fishing Report by Capt. Bill April 11, 2015

Another #hookedonsmiles Rock Springs, WY Some Walleye are being picked off in the mud lines usually fishing for Smallmouth.

Lake Powell Fishing Report April 4, 2015 – Capt. Bill McBurney

  Tiffany , WY 4-3-15 One of our #hookedonsmiles Stripers are spotty with Spring weather as water temps fluctuate5-7 degrees depending on winds and cooler nights and days.  If you are spot on any given day, fish can be caught.  I do not expect them to move out toward open water until May.  Time and anchovie fishing will be a wait and see.

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
