Lake Powell remains at the high water peak of 3609 MSL but has started its annual decline. The bright side of this picture is that brush and drift wood cluttered camping and recreational beaches will become pristine for the rest of the summer as water level declines.

The slow decline will stabilize fishing success and set the stage for awesome topwater fishing during the rest of July and August. There is just enough submerged brush in the water to harbor shad and protect them while they grow larger. Watch the lake level closely when planning a summer boil trip.
