Crappie fishing is getting better in the remote areas near Hite and the upper San Juan and Escalante River canyons.
Fishing is warming up even faster than weather. It is a good time to fill out the brackets for spring fishing. My prediction is that stripers on the southern end of Lake Powell will dominate the catch for the next week.
Photo caption: Steve Christensen, Orem UT, caught a 36-inch striper in Lake Powell's Good Hope Bay while pre-fishing for a bass tournament. His boating partner, TJ Hiatt, is holding the striper in this picture. The fish was not weighed but a fish of this length usually weighs from 17-20 pounds.
