    like at plez? personally i think the bite is a little slower than summer unless you can find a hole like 1702 up river or in the new marina or just on the break water at the marina

    But do they shut off in the winter like Flatheads, or do they stay pretty lively?

    you know iam not a striper fisherman but i thought that ppl caught more sripers in the winter time cause it brings them u out of the deeper water that thay are in during the summer cause the water is so warm and i thought thay like the cooler water. correct me if iam wrong

    You're definitely right, I know they are more prone to feeding at shallower depths when it's cooler because they are pretty intolerant of the warmer water.

    I figured I would tell you what I have experienced...but it is based off of Lake Powell and not Pleasant. I am sure that Pleasant is bound to be more active since the water is warmer during the winter.


    I have fished a few times at Powell during the winter with limited success. Stripers are always active and will feed more based off weather patterns except for in the spring. During the winter months, they will go deeper where the water temperatures fluctuate less and things are more stable. During the winter months, we have caught stripers in the 80-100 foot depths, but this was in sections where the lake was at 400 feet deep. I don't know if this changes things where I believe Pleasant is not as deep (never been there).
