April Catching! Just some of our Anglers   Water level has begun to hold with n0 drop down so the new Channel (The Cut) should be open by May 30, 2014 or sooner.  The Striper bait bite is on and will remain steady for the season.  Fish points and deep water ledges is the key with lots of chumming.  Bigger females  are near by so Fly Rodding or Conventional opportunities exist with patience and lots of casting.  Water is currently running 60 degrees with slight Read More +

Lake Elevation: 3574 Water Temperature 54-62 F Lake Powell water level increased a fraction of an inch this week.  It wasn’t much but it is a step in the right direction.  Combine that with warming temperatures and increasing day length and the ingredients are in place for good fishing.  Now the final ingredient is to plan your trip when weather is warm and calm. Try to avoid a cold front with wind if possible.  Warming water may even overpower the full moon effect which will Read More +

Lake Powell Fishing Report Lake Elevation: 3574 Water Temperature 52-60 F Lake level remains fairly constant with a slight drop to 3574 MSL.  We hope spring runoff holds off for another 3 weeks as the Castle Rock Cut deepening project will continue until the last week of April.  The best news is that the Cut will be deepened down to 3575 MSL meaning that the lake only has to come up 5 feet or so from the present level to allow boats to take the Read More +

Lake Powell Elevation: 3581.07 Dear Anglers, Stripers have continued to feed so far for the mild winter we are having.  You are not going to pinpoint the activity though on a regular basis.  Schools that bunch up are more aggressive but they will break apart sometime around a slight dip in water temperatures only to regrow again later.  Fly Fishing for Winter Schoolies with a 5-6 wt. rod will thrill you and by April the bigger fish and rods come into play. Conventional:  Trolling a Read More +
