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 +

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 +
