All the years at Powell and don't know about the mm25 wall. What wall is that? I know it has to be after you leave Padre to go around the big corner before pointing at Last Chance but help, I wanna go there. I've read about it over and over. Almost as magic as Moqui and the intakes. Our one week trip will be in that area in a week.

I’ve only fished it once with TR and had a ball catching stripers for the “2013” South Shad rally. Steve & Gena showed us the spot to fish. We think there may be a spring that comes into the lake to attract the stripers. They’re always there. Sq

The wall peters out on the west end at the entrance to Face canyon. The wall is about 1/2 mile long and on the other end is a small cove. There are usually fish all along the wall and into the little cove. The stripers there are like they are at the dam. They move up and down the wall so there's periods of boredom punctuated by great activity. I have spot lock and was on the edge of the cove and all 3 of us were catching fish. Our companion boat with 3 guys were not catching as they could not stay over the school so we tied the two boats together and were all busy catching stripers when Wayne showed up. He asked "how you guys doing, Chuck?". I told him "not so good" as one of the guys in the other boat did not have a fish on at the moment. Chuck

OK Birdsnest. Follow the buoys past the restroom cove. Buoy 24 is in open water but closer to the mouth of Face. Continue in the main channel to the next buoy which is number 25. Stop and look at the right hand wall. The tall wall goes to the right almost to the mouth of Face Canyon. Look at the left hand side, where the wall ends and drops down into a cove. This is the spot where fish are being caught right now.

Further to the left there is a narrow canyon that goes back about 100 yards. Water depth is 300 feet with shallow edges. This deep cove is what gathers the fish to this spot each spring. Later they move out to the main wall where they are being caught right now.

This spot was originally reported to me by Brandon Hammond, a fishermen from Page a few years ago. He found a similar occurrence this spring while bass fishing and reported a huge school of stripers residing in Grotto Canyon. We will see if this school stays there or moves on. I will keep an eye on them.

Good story Chuck. I remember it well. :)

It was either Mondo or Kurt that leaked that spot at the rally after a few adult beverages. They were spot on and it saved the rally from eating hamburgers that night lol.
