Conditions : ROOSEVELT LAKE: (2,111 feet, 57-percent full).

Roosevelt Lake level remains at 57% full. During the first week of November, the lake level has risen slightly. The amount of water coming into the lake from the Salt River is at 60% of the normal flow rate. The Tonto Creek is flowing at about 25% of its normal flow. Some storms have moved through the watershed recently releasing much needed moisture, however, winter storms and snow are the keys to increasing the lake level. An excellent snow-pack in Rim Country will ensure a steady flow of fresh water and nutrients into the lake during the spring.

Bass fishing on Roosevelt Lake is being reported as fair to good. The lake is undergoing a change to colder water temperatures due to recent cold fronts moving through the state. The water temperature on cloudy days is struggling to reach into the low 60s. As a result, the baitfish are moving to deeper water, followed by the bass. During recent tournaments anglers reported catching many bass using a spoon, however, during the tournament a slow moving jig on the bottom proved to be the winning technique. Likewise, crappie anglers are not catching the large numbers reported a few weeks ago. Most are reporting catching a few crappie from each spot and then moving to the next location. This transition to deeper water is very common during the winter months. As water temperatures continue to drop the metabolism of cold-blooded fish will slow dramatically. Anglers will begin to be more selective and only fish on bright sunny days when the water temperature will be slightly higher.
