Norm and his wife Theressa came to Powell from California to do some multi species fishing with me. Norm especially wanted to catch a walleye. Norm is a very experienced angler and brought his own gear. Day 1 saw excellent striper action with and without anchovies. A variety of grubs fished on a 1/4 oz head worked very well for stripers cruising  a shelf in 5-20 feet. I had Theresa on a chartreuse grub and she never changed it up because it just kept catching fish; stripers, smallies, and the first walleye in the boat from steep broken rock with shade. Later in the day, we ran into Navajo Canyon and found more stripers and a few crappie. Day 2 we fished for stripers again without anchovies and did well. I even got into the act with the fly rod before running up lake a bit to Gunsight Canyon. Gunsight fished well with smallies, largemouth and a couple more walleye. We finished the day with Theressa catching a couple more walleye on her trusty chartreuse grub and Norm finally had his on a bottom bouncer/ crawler harness rig.

Another spoon fest. 2 days with the Keller brothers from the LA area fishing 2 “split” days, 4 hours in the morning and another 4 in the evening. Sunday morning, we did very well on small stripers in Gunsight with spoons and a good number on topwater poppers. The bigger fish from a week prior just didn’t eat that day. In the evening, we headed to Warm Creek and it was on for the bigger fish. We drifted north with the wind and stayed on the fish for about a mile. Again spoons were the hot ticket and just before darkness fell a massive boil blew up very near where were fishing. Many of these fish were 3-4 pounders. Excellent end to day 1. Day 2 and we headed straight to Warm Creek again. This time the fish were fussy and we didn’t get many into the boat. After a while, we turned to fishing for small and largemouth with topwaters and caught a few from the flooded brush. The evening session was very productive again. Despite windy conditions, we spooned up many fish from yearling to 4 pounders. I love my job!
