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 August 7, 2016 by Capt. Bill McBurney

Lake Powell Elevation 3617.43 Lake Powell water is 84 degrees in the shad which means you to be patient and persistent over deep water anchovie fishing 50-100′ and then it is a soft pressure bite mainly.  Lake Powell is at a good level for shad to take refuge in the bush and the back of canyons.  I anticipate a good Fall and Winter for catching stripers.  Smallmouth in the the hot weather are around the 25-40 feet depth and you want the bait scratching the 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 +

Lake Powell Fishing by Wayne Gustaveson March 4, 2016 & Glen Canyon Water Levels

Lake Powell Fish Report – March 4, 2016 Lake Elevation: 3594 Water Temperature: 51-55 F By: Wayne Gustaveson March is coming in like a kitten, at least until the weekend when the temperature drops and a winter storm snows and blows. The Lake can certainly use more the moisture.  Fishing in the spring is always better during warming periods.  Here is what to expect when the next storm blows out and weather warms once more. Largemouth bass warm up and get a lot friendlier when Read More +

Lake Powell Fishing Spring Forecast 2016 from Wayne Gustaveson

Lake Powell Spring Forecast 2016 Lake Powell sportfish were warm and happy when tucked in for the winter in 2015.  Shad production has been at peak levels for the past two summer seasons.  Gizzard shad dependably produce a consistent number of offspring, but in 2014 – 2015, threadfin shad, were produced in record numbers. Stripers, bass and walleye absolutely “love” threadfin shad.  The shad boom came at just the right time for an aging striper population comprised of old stripers that were worn out from Read More +
