Lately July, August, September and October are good too. This year the stripers and small mouth were hitting top water.
Lake Powell produces 2 to 4 pound largemouth and 2 to 3 pound smallmouth bass. A 4 to 6 pound bass on Powell is considered big for Powell.
We caught a 5.0 pound smallmouth in April of 2010. As it got close to the boat we got really excited thinking it might be a lake record! But it fell a little short. That is the exciting thing about fishing, you never know when the big one is going to take your bait! We have caught several small mouth in the 4 to 5 # range.
