    Water Temps:  82-83   Troling early morning hours is producing nice strippers from sun up to early noon.  Some bait spots still producing but with more shad.

  Lake Powell Fish Report – September  21, 2016 Lake Elevation: 3611.26 Water Temperature: 73 – 75 F I made it back on the water this week after successful knee surgery.  My doctor suggested using the knee as much as the pain would allow.  I thought I should do more to hasten healing, so I incorporated my own plan for “fish-ical” therapy.  I can highly recommend my techniques for improving knee strength and movement which include: trolling while sitting down with the knee elevated.  (I Read More +

Lake Powell Fishing Report August 7, 2016 by Capt. Bill McBurney

Lake Powell Elevation 3617.43 Lake Powell water is 84 degrees in the shad which means you to be patient and persistent over deep water anchovie fishing 50-100′ and then it is a soft pressure bite mainly.  Lake Powell is at a good level for shad to take refuge in the bush and the back of canyons.  I anticipate a good Fall and Winter for catching stripers.  Smallmouth in the the hot weather are around the 25-40 feet depth and you want the bait scratching the Read More +

Lake Powell Fishing Spring Forecast 2016 from Wayne Gustaveson

Lake Powell Spring Forecast 2016 Lake Powell sportfish were warm and happy when tucked in for the winter in 2015.  Shad production has been at peak levels for the past two summer seasons.  Gizzard shad dependably produce a consistent number of offspring, but in 2014 – 2015, threadfin shad, were produced in record numbers. Stripers, bass and walleye absolutely “love” threadfin shad.  The shad boom came at just the right time for an aging striper population comprised of old stripers that were worn out from Read More +
