Was ot on Powers last Saturday NC this morning from 6-9:30. I agree it's bad. I've fished Powers for 30+ years and have not seen an algae bloom and general water turbidity as this year. Also agree deep water off the islands is the only thing going. Buddy and I caught 3 fish between us today - two LM (13", 14") and a small northern. Yuck.

There are a couple humps in the southern side of the lake.  Only ones having any success are the ones fishing deep near those humps.  I did bad 2 weeks ago.  No locater on my friends boat so I fished both shallow and deep.  Used leeches and crawlers but the leeches got the few fish we did get.  A few decent lmb.   I'm not much help to u but that's what I know.

My first time here on lakelink.  Need to know if others have fished Powers Lake recently.  We fished it last week Sunday and caught a few.  It was miserable compared to what I have seen on a normal basis.  We caught a small bass and a nicer larger one on a bluegill caught earlier in the day.  We fished shallow at the boat docks to start out.  Really didnt see any fish even thought he water was pretty clear.  The larger bass was down 15 over 17.  We caught a catfish, rock bass, bluegill and 2 largmouth and maybe another one or two.  We expected it to be nice with clouds overhead and no wakes all day but the ban had been lifted.  At 10am the lake went from flat calm to...you know.   Next time I try the docks or shallows first and dont see any, I am going deep immediately.  gonna keep a rod rigged just for deeper water.  Anybody fished here lately?  What happened when you went out?

We came in yesterday well after 2:30 but I never even thought to check if signs were still up. Thanks for the current info - changes my plans for tomorrow!

Definitely still no-wake whole lake (although you couldn't tell by a few idiots running around). Fished it this afternoon. Water not only high but as cloudy as I have ever seen Powers' water. Fooling around a bit with a scuba mask, I'd estimate underwater visibility at 4-5 feet max. Bass fishing was slow and small. Mostly through plastic but might have done better making some noise.

Paddock Lake has nothing to do with Powers Lake.
