Water Condition
Water Temperature  

Conditions : ROOSEVELT LAKE: - Roosevelt Lake water level currently stands at 49% full. The recent drawdown is the result of downstream water demands which are increased during the warmer months. Tonto Creek flow dropped to 13% and the Salt River flow is at 37% of normal flows for this time of year. The water condition in the lake is clear and the water temperature is in the mid 70's.

Bass fishing conditions on Roosevelt Lake are being called good by several experienced anglers. The large schools of shad are what most anglers are targeting early in the morning from safe light until the sunlight hits the water. Once the sunlight is on the water, the bass move to deeper depths to continue feeding on the bottom and to rest. Several reaction baits were reported successful in the early morning including top-water baits, crank-baits and a Pirch Outdoors Spider Bait. As the ambient temperature rises, deeper techniques such as a jig or Texas rigged worm are catching good numbers of bass in 20 to 25 feet depths on major points.

Crappie anglers are reporting an excellent morning bite mostly due to the improved weather conditions. Experienced crappie anglers also reported that some crappie are still in the spawning phase, however most crappie are gathering into schools and are heading into a normal summer pattern. Successful crappie anglers are fishing in 25 feet depths near submerged rocks and trees. Anglers reported success by catching 3 to 4 crappie from one location then rotating to several other locations holding crappie schools.
