LAKE POWELL – From Wayne Gustaveson: Striped bass annual migration is now almost complete. Fish movement begins in the spring as stripers react to warming water by leaving the backs of the canyons and heading toward the main channel to spawn.

LEES FERRY – (Up river) From Lees Ferry Anglers: Perfect weather pretty much sums up current conditions at Lees Ferry. Fall has arrived and unlike last year, we have no government shutdown or dirty water exiting Lake Powell to contend with. Current water flows are near perfect for fishing the Ferry; the flows are starting out the morning at 7500-cfs and then slowly rising though out the day to a max of 13,000-cfs, then dropping through the early morning hours back to 7,500-cfs.

From Wayne Gustaveson: Stripers just blew the hot water lid off of Lake Powell. The long hot summer kept the surface temperature above 80 degrees until the rainy cold front arrived this past weekend.

Now instead of daytime air temperatures reaching 90 degrees the temperature is now a much more comfortable 70 degrees. Morning air temperature is now in the 50s.
