    Tips and gear for 1st trip

    I can't speak for "most people" but yes, that is what I do. The only movement of the boat comes from wind. There is no current to speak of.

    Tips and gear for 1st trip

    Your rental should come with an anchor. As far as anchoring goes at Lake Powell, most anchoring is done to the shoreline. I personally carry a stake for that purpose (or tie to a tree or big rock). The lake bottom can be a very long way down. It will typically be similar to what is above the...

    Returning Rapids Project Presentation 2/18/2021 with Mike DeHoff

    "You play the hand you're dealt," my dad would always say. There may have been better (or worse) cards left in the deck. Overall, I'm pretty happy with my Lake Powell hand.

    New Situation, Portable Toilet Question

    Well, that specific brand was recommended to me by rangers in Zion NP for a multi-day trek through Kolob Canyon. Yes, many brands now. Yes, the government generally doesn't care as long as the product meets their standard. The Waste Alleviation and Gelling (WAG) bag was developed by the...

    New Situation, Portable Toilet Question

    The treated waste (in the engineered bag systems) can be placed in them according to the GCNRA/NPS Superintendent's Compendium. I believe the signs about human waste are directed to those who may be using ordinary plastic bags or other means to carry untreated human waste. Hope that helps...

    New Situation, Portable Toilet Question

    Wag bags are approved. They come with a bag within a bag (for extra protection), poo powder, toilet paper, hand wipes included. They are good for a few uses each. They do have a plastic portable toilet available also - but we usually just give one to each of the guys and let them work out the...

    My Dad

    Condolences, Ed. It's a blessing to have a great father. I lost mine a month ago today. Just watched his "adopted" grandson (actually a neighborhood 13-year old kid that took a liking to him) catch his first striper today off the back of the houseboat and so wish I could text Dad to tell him...

    Bullfrog ramps pics

    So, to the right (west) of that temporary dock is the primitive ramp they used last time the water was this low. Here is a sequence panning to that location. I can't tell for sure if that's the plan this year, but there appears to have been a lot of grading in the last photo (the site of the...

    Presidents Day Weekend at the Lake?

    First time fishing powell. I want to head down second half of feb first half of march. I am an avid fisherman with a boat.

    Keep an eye on the reports that are posted regularly in Angler's Corner. They're a good indicator of what is happening "now." As for general tips, take a look at Wayne's Fishing Tips and the Lake Powell Fishing areas. I don't think there's a bad time to be on the lake. Good luck!

    Interesting read on tamarisk

    I wish! There was great content there. We were able to retrieve articles, but forum contents were destroyed by some sort of hacker/virus before the remains were passed along to me. Sorry... Occasionally, you can find bits and pieces in the "way back" machine...
