  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 – Capt. Bill 9-6-16

Marie from Conneticut 9-3-16 Water Temps: 75-78 Lake Powell Elevation:3613.45     Striper boils on south end are like playing poker “luck of the draw”. It is best to leave very early and beeline it to the mouth of the San Juan and give it your best. I am catching some nice smallmouth mornings tube fishing and starting to fly fish and spin over stripers and chumming for them. I am guessing another 3-4 weeks for boiling action to improve but still a wait and Read More +

Lake Powell Fishing Report by Wayne Gustaveson July 19, 2016

Lake Powell Fish Report – July 19, 2016 Lake Elevation: 3620 Water Temperature: 77 – 83F Stripers have moved out of the main channel and toward the backs of canyons. The move indicates that the shad food source has been well used in open water of the channel and bays. Slurping stripers have been relentless in pursuit of small newly-hatched shad.   Those shad that have survived are seeking a sanctuary in the brush that now lines the shoreline.  Shad have a better chance of avoiding predation if Read More +
