We fished most of the day in Good Hope Bay.  The weather was as good as I have ever had at Lake Powell - the temperature was around 80 degrees with very light breezes.  We fished mostly for Walleye but also stripers, small mouth bass and crappie.  We did catch a few small mouth and a number of stripers and a bluegill but no crappie.  We caught many striped bass around Moki Canyon and the Bullfrog area.
We fished both the east and west sides of the bay mostly along rocky points.
The water in Good Hope Bay was showing signs of the spring runoff; it was somewhat milky with plenty of scum on the water.  I am sure that as the runoff continues the water clarity will only decline.  This did complicate the fishing from other areas downlake where the water was still clear.
We fished mostly with the curly tail jigs generally with a worm tip.  We did use some plugs imitating shad with little success.  The walleye were not striking aggressively and we lost nearly as many as we got to the boat.  The hit was almost like dragging the lure over a rock or some other underwater structure.  The stripers, however, were pretty aggressive in their attacking the lure.
