Another big fish record came to my attention that will probably stand for quite some time. On the northern border of Arizona, massive Lake Powell is a great fishery for many species of sport game fish. Many local anglers make an annual trip to this reservoir that is part of the Colorado River chain.
Lake Powell has become famous for walleyes, largemouth bass, smallmouth bass, crappies, and stripers throughout the 186-mile lake, which extends well into the state of Utah. When the springtime temperatures warm the water, this fishing mecca becomes a smallmouth bass hotspot.
