Lake Powell Fishing Report February 15, 2020

  High points – Low points to Pre-Spring Fishing on Powell   It’s all about the water temps, the moon phase, your approach and then the secret “luck of the draw”. For us locals and guides that finally get to fish “without customers” is the warming of a few consecutive nights and days by as little as a few degrees.  It doesn’t matter if your bait drop shotting, anchovies at a 100′, trolling, jigging or even fly fishing the shallows where stripers will run in Read More +

Lake Powell Fishing Report January 20, 2020 by Capt. Bill

Got out on the Pond (Lake Powell) yesterday to check out the boat and fly-fish and some trolling to test the bite and current water temps (47 degrees).  Caught my first ever Gizzard Shad on a Stripped Clauser Minnow Fly as I was graphing schools of fish in 23’ of water in the back of Warm Creek.  I snagged this one and they are a good fighter like their body design would indicate.  I would put them on par with a Trigger fish.  I was Read More +

Lake Powell Fishing Report January 11, 2020 by Capt. Bill

In a month or two it’s early season for Bass & Stripers – Color is important and I have learned to go with a reddish or deep orange on cranks and grubs.  Mr. Crawdaddy like to be burry up in the winter in our red sand and clay and this is a color change of red and orange and light browns are best! Winter shad Bass & Stripers schools either still shallow or down to a 100′ deep. The shallow schools are in 3-25′ of Read More +

Lake Powell Fishing October 20, 2019 by Capt. Bill

Current fishing conditions are a 50/50 toss up on stripers. One day we are catching alot and the next day (zero). Small & largemouth early morning top water and trolling has produced some nice fish 1-3 lbs. The fish are the bonus as this is the best time to see and experience the quest and the grandeur of Lake Powell. A majestic Lake. A few pics from my trip Wednesday!   Tight Lines, Capt. Bill

Lake Powell Fishing September 15, 2019 Capt. Bill

September 2019 Lake Powell Fishing Right now as water temperatures are slowly dropping on the south end of Lake Powell. To sum it up briefly, one day we have a fair bite and the next day nothing! So what is happening? The top layer (first few feet) of water has dropped from the summer 80’s to around 74 degrees. The fish are only active at very specific times to the day as to feeding and will improve as temps decline further. My summary for October Read More +

Lake Powell Fishing Report June 16, 2019

    Lake Powell Elevation:  3597.55 Water Temp: 71 degree Water inflow is peaking at a foot a day and catching can be awesome one day and slow the next.  At this time, we have 2 schools that are still taking bait and one of them is 50 miles up Lake Powell so a full day charter is recommended.  The closer school is a 1/2 day charter.  Two week from now that could all change.  But we keep the reports fresh for what is working currently. Smallmouth Read More +

Lake Powell Fishing April 20, 2019

So !   Bait fishBait fishing is excellent right now and Florida style Fly Fishing for stripers “chumming them up from the deep” is also great right now.   Low water now mean I have 1 hour each way to go to fish Navajo Canyon so fish cleaning is up to the customer on 1/2 day trips. Full day trip there is more time in the 8 hour window to prepare your catch.   When bringing your boat, be sure to let your guide know Read More +

Lake Powell Fishing Report January 20, 2019 from Capt. Bill

Happy New Years, I ventured out on the Pond yesterday to check out some motor work and scope some fish.  Water temps are at 44 degrees and most stripers were 50-75 ft. down and tight lipped with trolling.  I didn’t try any jigging,  but plan to after the next cold front.  Castle Rock Cut channel which saves boaters 24 miles to head up lake is now dry and will not have water till June when the run off from Colorado start to break loose.  So Read More +
