Good morning, Rim Country anglers,

Roosevelt Lake is 42 percent full and hopefully the monsoon rains will keep coming so the lake does not fall farther. The water in the lake is clear and the water temperatures are reaching the high 80s during the afternoons.

Bass fishing has been called "good" recently with two distinct patterns being reported. The first is a reaction bite either on top water or just under the surface. Spro Frogs, small swim baits, jerkbaits and crankbaits are successful for bass chasing schools of bait fish. And right now, huge schools of bait fish are being seen throughout the lake.

Bass swimming in schools called “wolf-packs” have also been reported. Typically this is something that happens in late summer and early fall but it could be just beginning to happen on Roosevelt.

If you see a group of bass attacking bait fish in deep water, a great technique is to cast a spoon into the school and let it flutter down until a bass grabs what looks like a falling shad. The second successful pattern being reported is a deep water jig or drop shot technique. Anglers are reporting bass in the 20-30 feet range using a Roboworm or a jig in a green and purple color.

The crappie bite is "good," with most anglers believing the new moon phase we just passed was a major contributor. Crappie anglers are catching good numbers during the evening and night-time using live minnows fished about two feet below a split shot weight is a very effective night-time crappie technique. If you’re fishing for crappie during the day, look for a submerged bush in 20 feet of water and vertically fish using a 2" curly tail grub-tail bait.
