August 23, 2018 - Lake Record Walleye

E-mail Print PDF

Olga and Clay Middlebrook were trolling in Ticaboo Canyon on August 23, 2018 using a crank bait and steel leader when Olga hooked a monster. The huge walleye was 11 pounds 4 ounces, weighed on a brand new digital scale. The fish was 31 and 1/8 inches long, with a girth of 17 and 5/8 inches. The fish was then released to swim and perhaps be caught again.

This surpasses the old record of 9 pounds 15 ounces, 28 inches long, caught by Lannie Sitterud, in Two Mile Canyon in 1991. That record held up for 27 years. 

Congratulations to Olga Middlebrook the new "Walleye Queen" at Lake Powell!

Fishing Report Information

E-mail Print PDF

Did you know that most reports now are loaded by the individual anglers making the reports. It is no longer necessary to send the report to me by email and then have me load it on this site. The only hard part is that you have to go to Wayneswords.net and click on Anglers Corner.  You are required to sign in with a name and password.  I promise you the process is easy and it only takes 2 minutes.  It saves me a great amount of time and allows you to interact directly with the angler posting the report. 

If you want to ask a question about fishing then do that on the Fishing Bulletin Board. 

Those of you not signed up for WW.net will find it hard to navigate because the posts are not in any order.  Sign up and it becomes very easy to get around because the threads are in order by date and it shows you new post you haven't seen yet.

We had over 5000 members signed up for WW.com but now the only sign up needed is for WW.net and we only have 1600 that have signed in.  Cal (long time user) was the most recent to sign in and he just posted a fish report.  If you want to see Cal's report from uplake, go to WW.net, sign in and start get full use out of the information provided here on both sites combined.

Thanks

July 26, 2018 - Rock Creek stripers

E-mail Print PDF

I wanted to let you know about our trips the weekend before the 4th and the weekend after.

We had very productive trips both weekends. The first trip we were camped in Friendship and caught SMB consistently with a variety of techniques (top water being the most fun) we saw consistent slurps at all times of day but were not lucky enough to catch any slurping stripers but did find willing stripers in Rock Creek. We located by trolling and then settled in over the school with bait. It multiple hook ups/as many as we wanted to catch(clean). Most were 1 1/2-3 pounds with one 6 pounder joining the fun. Fish were 30-45' of water. As a special bonus my 3 year old caught his first unassisted fish- a nice bluegill - and continued to be excited about catching the little rascals all weekend.

We had so much fun we came back the next weekend for a quick 2 day /1 night trip and had similar results in Rock Creek plus the bonus of some nice walleyes we caught in last chance.

Thanks again for all the info you provide and the work you do.

 

July 31, 2018 - Bullfrog Slurps

E-mail Print PDF

Here’s a quick breakdown of our quick trip. The jigs seemed better than the spoons.

Arrived Thursday night and went straight to Defiance house.  On the water Friday around 6:30 from Bullfrog.  Stayed within a couple hundred yards of the houseboat field fishing small slurps and borderline boils everywhere for a couple hours.  Biting on spooks, jumping minnows on top and Yamamoto jigs after going down.  Had to head back to pick up the rest of the family and have breakfast at hotel.  Played on the water toys for most of the mid-day activities.  Headed back to hotel to avoid small storm and have dinner.  Went back out on the water around 6:30 up to good hope. Beautiful weather after the storm but didn’t see any surface activity. Ended up back in Bullfrog bay with anchovies until 11:00pm with just a little action.

Saturday everyone slept in so no fishing in the morning.  Wind came up in afternoon and blew until 8:00pm. Came home Sunday morning. 

I am guessing of course— but think the full moon may have something to do with it and the wind makes it tough.  Still the best place to be fishing or not!!  Love all of the posts and your reports. Keep up the great work Wayne. Thx!!!

 

June 9. 2018 - Bullfrog Stripers

E-mail Print PDF

Just returned from Powell. We fished late afternoons after playing most of the day. After a slow start along Moki Wall, we got into good numbers of 3-6lb stripers along the right wall to Lost Eden but hit them hard just inside Crystal Springs. Witnessed several slurps each day in main channel out from Bullfrog and just inside the no wake area of Lost Eden. We were doing the best at 40-50ft but caught the heavier fish around 60-65ft. We mainly used anchovy morsels on lead heads.

A great trip as always.
