Late winter and early spring have always been a good time for anglers to visit Lake Powell. The biggest striped bass are caught at this time each year and other species are also caught in large numbers. No one knows more about fishing at the massive reservoir, than Wayne Gustaveson, Lake Powell Project Leader for the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources. Gustaveson has caught his fair share of fish at Powell and claims to remember each by name. He didn’t mention the name of this 20-inch largemouth bass he caught on a recent excursion.

    (JP Keisling and his Dad, Collin, from Page. Arizona, had a great time fishing for fat stripers while trolling in Navajo Canyon. JP was strong enough to land this striper and then hold it up for the picture.  All fish have had a great winter with a bumper crop of shad.  All sport fish species are fat and strong waiting to do battle with anglers. Be prepared for big fish and lots of fun.

Nob Wimmer found all species of fish guarding shad schools in shallow coves at the backs of canyons.  It was possible to catch stripers, largemouth and smallmouth bass while casting crankbaits in shallow water.  Great fishing should last into November or as long as the current great fall weather will last.

Smallmouth bass at Flaming Gorge were added to Utah’s Mercury Fish Consumption Advisory list on Sept. 30, 2014. More fish and fisheries added to Utah consumption advisory list - do you eat them?
