Conditions : ROOSEVELT LAKE: - (2,099.5 feet, 46 percent full): Bass Pro Gary Senft fished the lake Saturday, Feb. 21, and reported a good largemouth bass bite in 6-10 feet of water on crankbaits, plastic worms and spinnerbaits, as well as brush hogs, jigs and dropshots in 8-20 feet of water. He said fish were caught from the dam to windy hill and around both sides of the lake on any rocky points and steep drop-offs.

It’s official -- Roosevelt Lake pre-spawn bass fishing is underway. The warmer water temperatures have the bass chasing or reacting to most any type of fast moving bait.

Chatter baits, spinnerbaits, crankbaits and jerkbaits were among the most successful baits this past week. Clearly bass are feeing heavily prior to spawning and can be found near the entrances or just outside of the spawning coves. The full moon during the first week of March is setting up to be a terrific time to bass fish on Roosevelt Lake. The water clarity is improving and the flows into the lake decreased dramatically last week. Currently both the Salt River and the Tonto Creek are flowing at 50 percent of their normal rates. The lake level has risen four and a half feet in the past month and currently stands at 46 percent full.

Crappie fishing also improved this past week. The crappie spawn is typically about a month after the bass spawn. Right now, crappie are becoming more active. The most reported technique is trolling a ¼-ounce jighead with a curly tail grub.

Anglers reporting using darker colored baits in stained water, and lighter colors in clear water. Crappie were being caught in 20-30 feet depths and mostly along points. Salome Cove was named the hot spot this past week by local anglers.
