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!.

Fish movement begins in the spring as stripers react to warming water by leaving the backs of the canyons and heading toward the main channel to spawn.

Fishing Report October 8, 2014 with Capt. Bill

    Fly Fishing 10/8/14 with Richard Hargis from Utah The days scenario fishing Powell is a 50/50 possibility for Stripers. If you hit the schools on top then two people can bag 10 to 20 fish in and hour fishing conventional. Fly fisherman can cut that equation in half. The fish are fat and strong with 1 1/2 inch fillets for the table. The rest of the day would be looking for small mouth unless where presented with another boil of course the hopefully Read More +

Photo:  Striped bass caught now are as healthy as they have ever been due to a bumper crop of shad.  Stripers are selecting threadfin shad in the main channel and saving gizzard shad next to shore until later in the year.  Fishing is challenging in these high forage conditions but very rewarding when catching these beautiful prime young fish.
