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

Lake Powell Fishing Report – by Capt. Bill McBurney 1-19-15

Either fly The lake has very little traffic and you can explore “hunt” the backs of all the coves and canyons.  The chance for a “whopper” has increased.  The catch can be “nil” at times but for me it’s the hunt and the quiet and a lot more wildlife and sight seeing too. Fly fishing, trolling and structure casting are the few of many approaches with bait fishing starting usually in the spring.  Take advantage of our 10% off early booking for Spring today.  Just Read More +

Lake Powell Fishing Report Spring Forecast by Capt. Bill

Dear Anglers, Positive feed back from our fishing biologist which is very promising with the abundance of bait fish this Winter.  Whatever style of angling, beginner, semi pro-fly fishermen, bait cast, spin or trolling Spring should provide great angling opportunities.  Our newest boat a 26′ triton that cruises 25knots is rigged for that Spring Lake Powell trip of a lifetime. Current Winter angling is a 50/50 proposition but offers an experience like no other with little or zero boat traffico n the water (weather permitting Read More +
