I am joining the Wayneswords family cause I have been visiting the site for everything Powell for years. I lived in Page for 10 years while working as a marine mechanic for a houseboat rental company. Used to take my boat out for lunch breaks and fish. Wonderful. When a shad ball came through you could hear the stripers banging off the pontoons and hulls of the houseboats. Great memories. Met my wife on Powell on a houseboat trip. 6 to 8 guys take at least one fishing trip a year for a week on a houseboat. This year we are going from May 11th to the 16th and will fish from mm25 to mm56. Can't wait. What a blast! WE all are so lucky to have this beautiful reservoir to enjoy. Great fishing to everyone and thank you Wayne and everyone else who makes this site possible. Birdsnest.
