Lake Powell has many species to offer; the most famous of these is the striped bass. This top predator is the most requested target species of my clients. Other game fish species include largemouth and smallmouth bass, walleye, crappie, bluegill, green sunfish and channel catfish.
We employ many techniques to catch the various species here at Lake Powell. Stripers are caught many different ways; dropping frozen anchovies, trolling, vertical spooning and casting methods all have their place and time. Largemouth and crappie are most frequently caught related to brushy cover. Smallmouth are normally caught around rocky structure but can be found mixed in with the largemouth as well. Lake Powell's walleye population has improved greatly in recent years and now sit just below stripers in the food chain. They are caught trolling crankbaits, on traditional bottom bouncer rigs and incidentally while fishing for largemouth and smallmouth.

If you haven't heard, a landslide has closed US 89 approximately 25 miles south of Page. The damage is extensive and this route to Page/ Lake Powell will be closed while AZ DOT works on a solution. Drivers who are traveling to Page/ Lake Powell from the south or Lees Ferry from the northeast will need to plan for extra travel time. There are 2 alternate routes to Page. The best paved alternate route to Page requires motorists to travel northeast on US 160 through Tuba City, then west on State Route 98 to Page. This detour is about 45 miles longer than the direct route on 89. US 89A through Marble Canyon, Lees Ferry area and Cliff Dewllers toward North Rim of Grand Canyon, Fredonia and Kanab, Utah is unaffected...read more
Latest Fishing Information
Lake Powell 4/12 Spring has arrived big time. The striper fishing is wide open, I mean 100+ stripers per boat wide open. The water temp is currently 57 in the morning and 61 or better in the backs of canyons by the end of the day. Bass fishing for both large and smallmouth is on too. A variety of methods is working. Topwater, spinnerbaits, jerkbaits, cranks, jigs and soft plastics are working well now. Walleyes have been caught on jigs while fishing for bass and trolling or casting crankbaits. Crappie fishing is good as well but I haven't had a chance to experience it yet. The lake is low exposing the previously submerged trees. With this low level, the Castle Rock Cut will be deepened further to an elevation of at least 3599. The lake level is now at 3597. My latest guide trip was a success. I had a family of 4 and we crushed the stripers and had a big fish to boot...read more

Lees Ferry With the arrival of spring, the midge hatches pick up and so does the fishing. There is excellent fly fishing in the riffles and tail-outs for trout eating midges, scuds and worms. There are trout spawnning primarially in deep water so fish are also looking for eggs. Spin fishing bouncing egg patterns on the bottom is working very well. Jigs, spinners and spoons are also a good bet. My guide trip on 4/13 was excellent Read more
