Wayne, thanks for the information. We will only be fishing/sightseeing for one day. I looked on the lake powell map and couldn't find Neanderthal cove and/or Dove Canyon. Still trying to learn about this end of the lake!
It's the unnamed cove just up stream from West Canyon on the same side of the main channel. You are right, most maps don't show a name but it is know by both you mentioned. Good Brush there now along the main channel and inside th cove...should fish real well. Chuck
I think the best thing to do is fish with bait in the southern lake. The slurps have dropped off dramatically in the last week. Bait fishing is still good. Navajo Canyon is still producing on the points just passed the double islands. The mouth of Navajo in the main channel has a school that moves around. You might find that one. Buoy 9, Intake, Buoy 3, Antelope canyon. Try 2 or 3 of these spots with bait and you should still find fish.
Smallmouth have moved into the brush along with shad but can also be found on the slick rock walls. I hope you find fish.
I was at the south end last week. We found slurps in the main channel near Padre. We didn't have any luck fishing them. Found a boil at Anchovy Point that kept coming back up, yearling fish and funny no takers there either. Went to the dam and caught lots of fish, but most were in real bad shape. Fun to catch just not worth cleaning for the most part.
