Lake Powell Fall Fishing August 29, 2021 by Capt. Bill McBurney

    Dear Anglers, The Good News: Nothing but questions marks for the time being as we are all waiting for Labor Day and cooler water temperatures to drop that trigger bait fish to migrate to cover they now do not have as far to to go.  This all new for us Fishing Guides as well and I am not stating where to find the fish  but the scouting and learning the topography to the shoreline and beneath will be for us and old school Read More +

Lake Powell Fishing Report October 11, 2020 by Capt. Bill

Some recent photos of some great anglers and my guy yesterday “flyfishing”. Smallmouth and largemouth and sunrise and dusk both top water and Yamamoto dark brown and orange grubs on 1/4 oz. Yamamoto jig heads. Stripers are plentiful but can be contrary to a daily winning catch rate on the end of the Lake Powell. There are bait schools everywhere and we are catching some early morning by trolling deep divers shad in purple backs and natural. Some mornings allot of fish hook ups and Read More +

Lake Powell Fishing Report January 11, 2020 by Capt. Bill

In a month or two it’s early season for Bass & Stripers – Color is important and I have learned to go with a reddish or deep orange on cranks and grubs.  Mr. Crawdaddy like to be burry up in the winter in our red sand and clay and this is a color change of red and orange and light browns are best! Winter shad Bass & Stripers schools either still shallow or down to a 100′ deep. The shallow schools are in 3-25′ of Read More +

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 +

Here are some recent photos of our anglers…thank you for coming and fishing with Ambassador Guides     Lake  Powell Elevation:   3612.02   Lake Powell Fly and top water action is beginning….

Lake Powell Fishing 4-28-18 by Capt. Bill

  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. Better fish are in the depth range of 70′ total depths adjacent to drop off channels in side canyons. Smallmouth – Still allot on the beds right now on the beach of broken rock and weeks. Pumpkin 4 oz jig tubes- best. Walleye- are the stumble on fish fishing for bass Read More +

Had an exceptional day with guests from CT and MI. My CT Guests were pursing stripers but stripers had gone deep due to the cold fronts so we readjusted to fishing Read More +

Lake Powell Fishing Report January 29, 2018

Dear Anglers, Happy 2018 and hope you all had a wonderful Holiday Season and a great 2017. We have have good winter fly-fishing season with the stripers.  Unless it gets severely colder, I can usually count on a window for stripers to fee in the shallows.  For Spring we have a wait and see to observe as to what is in store because of the lack of snow “so far” in the Rockies this year.  A low run off will be a fair bait bite as Read More +

Lake Powell Fishing Report 11-21-15

Lake Powell Elevation: 3605.98 Water Temp: 60 degrees Dear Anglers,   Went out yesterday with my neighbor to hunt for crappie but to no avail.  We turned our hunt for smallmouth in Gunsite Canyon and found our fish at 40′ off the points.  Are last approach where we hunted for suspended stripers along the channel edge where you graph the contour of the drop off to 40-100′.  Stripers hit the Deep Dive shad raps on a 5mps fast troll.  We landed 6 fish all between Read More +
