Conditions : ROOSEVELT LAKE: - (2.090 feet, 38-percent full). Jim Goughnour of Rim Country Custom Rods with an Aug. 23 report:

Bass fishing was called “good” this past week with most of the positive reports coming from the Salt River end of the lake. This is probably due to the increased flow of water the past couple of weeks.

The best reported bait this past week was a dark colored jig using a flippin technique; the second was a dark-colored worm on a dropshot; and third was a 7-inch curly tail camo worm on the Carolina rig.

The early top-water bite didn't appear to be happening this past week; however, experienced anglers are continuing to report that the gradual transition from the summer pattern to a late summer/early fall pattern is underway. You'll want to keep a top-water bait tied on your rod and ready to cast if you see bass chasing schools of shad on the surface. Fall fishing can be some of the most fun times to be on the water, and I, for one, am looking forward to the cooler weather and being able to spend more time on the water.

The crappie bite was called fair this past week. Crappie are still being caught in brush that is in 20-30 feet of water. A lot of patience is required and you may need to catch a couple from one location, then move to another spot. Ideally, if 4-5 spots are known, you can rotate between them and not put too much fishing pressure on any one spot. Small 2-inch grub tail baits on the 1/16 or 1/8-ounce jighead are required as well as 4-6-pound test line.

Many successful baits were reported this past week including cicadas, PowerBaits, grubs, and dry flies.

Have a great week of fishing and I hope see you on the water.
