Kim and Joe from Espanola here. We and our dogs had a GREAT trip to Lake Powell October 5-8. We camped near the back of Dry Rock Creek and fished the back of Dry Rock Creek and Rock Creek. We caught all the stripers we cared to fillet over our three day trip and came back with our cooler crammed with fish.
We caught most of them in about 70-90 feet of water. Stripers seemed to be holding around 60 feet to the bottom and were very willing to take our lures (picture below). We had better luck at the back of Rock Creek. We saw no boils and tried trolling (that middle lure usually brings them in), but only caught smallmouth this time.
Last trip this year, can't wait for the next year.
