Short Take: 161,390 acres; deep clear water, steep-walled canyons, rocky points, some flooded brush, no vegetation. Of all the bass lakes in the United States, none truly compares to Lake Powell, the huge, clear-water impoundment on the Colorado River in northern Arizona and southern Utah. It is not a spectacular fish producer, but it is spectacularly beautiful. Stretching 186 miles northward from Glen Canyon Dam in Page, the lake offers a kaleidoscope of steep canyons and unusual rock formations along both shorelines. There are 96 major canyons along the lake’s nearly 2,000 miles of shoreline, all encompassed within the National Park Service’s Glen Canyon National Recreation Area. Named for John Wesley Powell, the famed explorer of the Grand Canyon (which begins just a few miles below Glen Canyon Dam), the rugged, undeveloped countryside surrounding the lake looks little different today than when Powell came down the river in 1869. The hills and canyons are dotted with ancient Anasazi ruins, pictographs, and natural stone arches—many reachable only on foot or by four-wheel-drive vehicle. Most of the real travel here, however, is by water. For bass fishermen that translates into a run of more than 100 miles from Wahweap Marina near the dam up to the San Juan River, where the majority of bass fishing takes place.
