OUT: Lake Powell Fishing Report September 25, 2008

By Wayne Gustaveson

Lake Powell Report Sept. 19 Lake Elevation: 3,627 msl Water Temp: 77-79 F Striped bass have apparently gone on a two-week vacation. Fishing for the normally voracious predators has been uncharacteristically quiet. The culprit seems to be living the high life for most of the summer. Stripers are fat and apparently content to coast for a while on the reserves they stored during the easy days of summer. Shad are still abundant, but some schools are moving to the backs of coves. This is ...

By Dave Buchanan

When 75-year-old Tom Chapman, Sr., of Orchard Mesa, mentioned earlier this summer to son Tom Chapman, Jr., that the senior Chapman had once visited Alaska but never had the opportunity to fish that magnificent state’s waters, Tom, Jr., took the announcement to heart. The two anglers recently spent a week in Alaska, including two days fishing for halibut and two days fishing the lower Kenai River for salmon. The two-some brought home 130 pounds of fish, said Tom, Jr., a captain with ...

OUT: Grouse hunting in remote Cold Springs includes using ATVs

By Dave Buchanan

MAYBELL — At first glance, it seems there’s a lot of nothing up here. And that’s good. One town to speak of, a handful of ranches — many of which stretch to the horizon and then some — and barely enough people to fill the auditorium at the Maybell school. This is the farthest you can get from home and still be in Colorado. Up in the windswept reaches where Colorado, Utah and Wyoming angle together near the foot of Cold Spring Mountain, a slump-shouldered ...

Because the DOW hasn’t any concrete lion population numbers, conservationists have been concerned about the possible over-harvest of females. After annual harvest statistics showed an increase in the number of of ...
