Wayne Gustaveson predicts this will be the year of the Big Fish at Lake Powell.

The photo at right shows a 28 pounder caught by Rich Cromwell Halls Creek Bay. Wayne gives this account:

 "A bass angler was bouncing tube jigs on the bottom at 40 feet near the Halls boat ramp when a 28-pound striper inhaled the bait.  He landed the trophy and now leads the parade with the largest striper caught this year.  This fish is larger than the 5-10 pound fish that are being caught in the southern lake.  There will be many more “big fish,”  5 pounds and better, caught as spring progresses."

Wayne is the DWR biologist heading the fishing program at Lake Powell. He writes a weekly fishing report giving excellent, timely tips for catching all species at Powell.
