|Lee's Ferry Rainbow|
It's a pretty amazing fishery. Thanks to water flowing out of the bottom of Lake Powell, water temperatures don't vary much more than 45 degrees all year long. The water is too cold for conventional hatches to come off in all but the hottest summer months when they get a cicada hatch. As a result, we fished tiny zebra midges with a small split-shot and strike indicator. It definitely polished up our nymph fishing tactics.

One the way out we went through Kanab, Utah and Paige Arizona so we could drive over the Glen Canyon Dam and take a look at Horseshoe Bend from the lookout. It was spectacular. Luke scrounged up a few lizards to boot. Coming back through Jacob's Lake offered an amazing view of southern Utah from the Kaibab forest at 8000 feet elevation.
This should definitely go on the annual 'To Do' list.
