Hello all.

I live just outside of Albuquerque, and usually fish Elephant Butte in southern New Mexico. I've been in the Page, AZ area several times but never for fishing. Usually just exploring the canyons and scenery between Page and Kanab, UT.

Decided to pull the boat out of Elephant Butte and take a trip this May to Powell. I have a Tracker V18 and will be fishing with my dad. I'm still trying to get the hang of fishing these reservoirs without the lilly pads we had back east!

Welcome from Colorado! My family did a trip to Elephant Butte many years ago (must have been 1991?). Saw some huge stripers there. Fun lake, but Powell is my favorite.

I was at Elephant Butte 2 years ago in September, and the water level was really low. Is it recovering?
Not really. It's up 23 ft from last fall but they already started draining it. It's been about the same the past 3 years. They've recently been stocking black bass instead of stripers.

It looks like at full pool it would be a great recreational lake. How long would you guess it's been since the lake has been at full pool?
