Largemouth and Smallmouth Bass
Bass are caught readily on soft plastic baits fished on lead heads. A variety of crankbaits, spinner baits, lead head jigs in both marabou and bucktail are effective. Live water dogs are no longer available. Live worms have been used with some success. Live fish are not allowed as bait.
Largemouth (bottom) are caught most readily in March and April and are closely associated with brush. Smallmouth bass (top) are found on ubiquitous rocky shore lines and may be the most common fish in Lake Powell. They can be caught in good numbers from April to October. Biggest fish are caught during the April spawning period.
