Good morning, Rim Country Anglers,

Bass fishing on Roosevelt Lake is excellent this week. Bass continue to be either spawning or post spawn and chasing a large variety baits aggressively. Most any type of reaction bait is successful right now and top-water baits are working great too.

One tip for fishing top-water baits is to let the fish take the bait down until you feel pressure on the middle section of you fishing rod, before setting the hook. Setting the hook to quickly will often rip the hook from the fish. The ideal rod for fishing top-water baits is a medium power with a moderate fast action. Texas rig and dropshot using a Roboworm in 15-20 feet depths is also a good springtime technique.

The water level in Roosevelt Lake currently stands at slightly less than 50 percent full. The Salt River is flowing at 30 percent while the Tonto Creek is at 25 percent. The water temperature is in the 60s which is perfect conditions for fishing.

The crappie spawn is also underway so most crappie anglers are fishing shallow water and always near some kind of cover. Right after the spawn crappie will begin to gather in schools. I noticed some anglers trolling recently so if you don't see crappie on beds, try trolling a ¼-ounce grub tail. If you see crappie spawning, a grub tail on a 1/32-ounce jig head hook.

Summer trout stockings are underway. Be sure to check out the AZGFD website for the latest trout stockings of your favorite Rim Country lake and stream.
