I was there the 13th and we saw 2 muskie at joes bush, both about 30inches. other than the tons of small rainbows we only saw one laker, 3lb range. I have never seen anything even close to 15lbs. How deep were you diving to see so many lake trout?

Lake trout weren't at Joe's bush, but they were in as little as 25 feet, but the deeper the better. You'll see a lot in the 2-3 lbs range to 30 feet. But imo you need to be at least 40-50 feet for a chance at something bigger. Also, go early in the morning.

First Post here, longtime lurker. Figured I should report on this past weekends conditions at lake Powell:
Water was warm, no issues in 2mm wetsuit, serious thermocline at 20-22'. Viz was 15+ 3 miles down River from bullfrog, could be less than 5' in spots up River. Great time out shooting carp and panfish, 3 walleyes. Introduced 3 others to the magic of spearfishing. Pole spears only, great fun.

See any stripers?
Sounds like a good time.

We saw a handful just cruising the shallows, got in front of a boil and tried swimming in with direction from boat tender. Tried Moqui wall last hour of light, only saw a couple strikers but connected on a bunch of carp and a few giant gizzard shad there. Pretty murky water past 12' on Moqui.

Gorge is awesome. Vis was 20+, water 70-73. Lots of bass with some pigs (3+ pounds) here and there in the rocky coves, didn't dive more than 40 feet for any.

Went last weekend, tons of nice bass which will be shootable this weekend, and lots of carp. One 5ish pound walleye that i shot but he ripped off. Woulda been my first walleye and I was definitely not happy. Looking for a second chance this weekend hopefully

Hit east canyon today. Vis was 3-5' by the dam. Got up later than I would have liked so I am sure the boat traffic had a lot to do with the poor vis. Saw some smallies that were tiny but that's it.

Re: Utah Visibility Overview (please contribute!)

All muskies must be 40". Sucks trying to tell underwater but I measure my gun for a reference before I shoot. Others can give their methods to tell.
