Transcript for Lake Powell, segment 07 of 11
Upstream fifteen river miles, between lofty cliffs of Navajo sandstone, a unique place to go boating, a unique place to go fishing.
On Lake Powell itself tour boats take sightseers through the canyons to the dam and to scenic attractions around the lake.
For those who like to go off on their own, boats can be rented at the marinas or, as many thousands do, a family can bring its own boat.
Water-skiers try their skill on hundreds of our country's lakes, but few lakes can match Lake Powell for the sheer spectacle of its scenic backdrop.
A favorite sport at Lake Powell is fishing for the large and small fish that inhabit its deep waters. Although many trout, bluegill, and catfish thrive in this lake, the usual catch is largemouth black bass.
