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 +

Spring Run off at Lake Powell 2019

The Colorado, Wyoming and Utah snow pack will make Lake Powell boating & fishing trip longer until the run off is complete around the 2nd or 3rd week of June. Castle Rock Cut will be closed until then with no water.   Until runoff is completed, access to certain area are limited and your guide will discuss what options he recommends for your fishing charter.  Be prepared to venture through the main channel to get to key areas until then.

  Lake Powell Fishing Report – 4-28-18 by Capt. Bill   For the next 2 weeks, Stripers – use baite (anchovies) which has picked up somewhat at the dam but expect 50/50 fish quality.

How do you like to catch them? If fly fishing May & June in the back of canyons I recommend in the the south half and sometimes in early July for Read More +

Lake Powell Fishing Report by Ambassador Guides 5-14-17

Lake Powell Elevation : 3608.45 Water Temp:  67 degrees Small mouth stripers and few good walley these last few weeks are very hungary.  The quality stripers are out there and move around so it’s a hunt to various locations hunting those fish (too many fish in the striper pool). Ambassador will not not keep poor underweight fish just the good ones for the best “table fare” for those who want to keep.  I have been fly fishing, spin fishing and trolling and some bait!.
