Lake Powell has created a new realm for fishermen. Before Glen Canyon Dam was built, the Colorado River was so full of silt that only suckers, bonytails, and chubs could survive in its murky waters. While the need to protect these native endangered fish is the highest priority, abundant gamefish now thrive in the clear waters of Lake Powell. Introduced species such as bass and crappie as well as walleye, bluegill, and catfish challenge the avid fisherman.
