Lees Ferry Report
Guide Trip
March 23, 24 and 30th, 2013
 
2 groups of fly anglers on separate weekends with similar success. Dry and dropper rigs are working well on shallow flats and drop-off areas. Eggs and midge larvae are taking rainbows around spawning beds. The trusty double nymph rig is producing well in deeper runs with scuds and Zebra midges. Swinging wooly buggers on a sink tip line has been consistent in certain situations as well. The flows are excellent for wading giving us access to many spots unavailable with higher flows. This is going to be a great spring at the Ferry

Nice stable weather prior to today’s guide trip on Lake Powell with Evan, TJ and Bob from UT. We fished for smallmouth for the first half of the day. Smoke color Yamamoto Hula grubs and chartreuse single tails were the best choice. Several smallies and 2 walleyes and 1 striper came to hand on the plastics. We trolled the back of Navajo at lunch time with limited success but we did have a few stripers take deep divers while trolling. We went back to bass fishing to end the day with decent luck again on Hula Grubs and single tails around broken rock.

After a late winter snow storm on Friday, March 8 PM – March 9th AM, I had my first guide trip on Lake Powell for 2013 on Sunday, March 9th. Kacey, Scott, Ryan and Jed from Roosevelt, UT fished with me for stripers in Navajo Canyon. The storm had cooled off the water a bit since the week before and fishing is generally tough immediately after a cold front and storm. We were able to scratch out a decent day trolling, spooning and fishing a short time with anchovies. The guys caught fish on several crank baits, minnow shaped and shad shaped alike. We spooned a few and sought a few on frozen anchovies in 35 feet. Trolling was the most productive overall. One of the best baits of the day was a giant 6″ Storm minnow diver. Great guys and a beautiful weather. I hope to get up and fish for giant lake trout with them on Flaming Gorge sometime this year.

Saturday I launched about 11 for a good spring break in cruise for the boat. Caught 1 nice LM across from Whaweap marina at the end of the day.
Sunday I ran back into Navajo Canyon. I saw 1 other boat that was having good success trolling anchovies with lead core. I tried a 40 foot shelf across from them. There were plenty of fish but I didn’t hook any pulling plugs. I left that area in favor of the dirtier water in the back of the canyon. After a few passes, I began to pick them up on Norman DD22’s, deep thunder sticks. wally divers, and Risto Raps. The DD22 was the most consistent. The biggest fish went 4.75, average was 3.5-4. The warmest water was 52.5, spring is breaking out! Wahweap was 48 degrees at 10:30
