Lake Powell Report
June- August 2012
Topwater and spooning for stripers is the name of the game in the hot part of the summer for me. I’ve taken a few trips on the lake and stayed close to Page. I start out looking for splashes from stripers chasing shad and throw a topwater of some type in the area. Most of these fish have been yearlings and in the 16 inch range but still fun. The bigger fish in the 3-5 pound range are deeper and will usually take a jigging spoon. I keep a close eye on my sonar and when I find a school, I put down the topater and quickly pick up the spoon rod and drop it to the feeding stripers.
