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 +

  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.

Pumpkin 4 oz jig tubes- best. Walleye- are the stumble on fish fishing for bass 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 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 +

Lake temperature has dropped back down to 56 degrees in the mornings but it rises to 60 by evening. That has slowed bass and crappie spawning.  Looks like 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 Fishing Report by Wayne Gustavson 3/26/14

Photo:  Bill McBurney reported catching an 19 pound striped bass while fly fishing in the southern lake this past week. Striped bass are coming shallower in warming water making them easier to catch by trolling and casting.   Lake Powell Fishing Report March 26, 2014 Lake Elevation: 3575 Water Temperature 52-60 F The weather is warming but the changes are subtle.  On calm warm days surface temperature spikes from 50 up to 60 degrees or higher.  The cold winter water is still below so warm Read More +

Lake Powell Fishing Report 1-19-14

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 +
