Fish: Striped Bass

help with lake powell

Post By: sylvan      Posted: 2/18/2015 1:51:03 PM     Points: 10626    
A friend has invited me to fish Lake Powell from the 27th of Feb until the 8th of March. He has a houseboat docked at the lake and we will fish from his son's Lund. He is not that familiar with the lake and I have never fished it. Some help and info on the striper fishing or maybe some crappie info would be greatly appreciated.

For stripers, think anchovies, rock walls and drop offs. ( although I have no clue if this works in Spring but it's a good start ) Let it fall and hang on.

For strippers, don't think anchovies, just think let it fall and hang on. HA HA, sorry I had to throw that in there.

Man spring on lake Powell means lots of stockings of rainbows and the medium easy to catch striper going after them. Big swin sits and jigs are awsome the small mouth should be moving shallow around that time to do their thing. Water is super clear the couple times I have been there so natural colors flouro line. Tubes and curly tail jigs should slotter the crappie and smallies in back bays any idea about where your staying.

Find rock walls,and when you mark the strippers, they may be 100' down, cut up anchovies and chum with them, when the fish move up to 30',get ready.

Or better yet invite me and I can be your guide, but I'm not sure about a Lund boat.

Thanks for the info I'll be staying at Bull Frog Marina. The house boat is a time share.

Oh man...what a great trip at a crucial time of the year to get rid of the cabin fever blues.

Check out the Moki Wall and Moki Canyon, then drop whole anchovies. You may need to head south if they aren't there,

I would use anchovies off the back of the houseboat at night. Green light in the water if you can find one. Great way to spend the evening. Can catch Stripers and catfish and a few other species that way.

As for out in the lake. Try trolling bombers over 25-35 ft of water right now and if it is warm, hit the edges of points with smoke curly tail grubs or hula baits to pick up walleye and small-mouth.

by the way, I am jealous.
