Bass anglers are reporting fair bass fishing conditions on Roosevelt (and Apache) lakes. Early morning, late evening and after dark are the best times to be fishing during the summer months. Typical summer bass fishing techniques such as a dropshot, Texas rig, Carolina rig or a jig near major points and islands is where most fish are being caught. A popular summer bass fishing location are submerged humps in 20-30 feet depths where bass will stage during the daylight hours and feed during low light conditions.

The lake level has dropped to 45 percent full. The recent monsoon rains have not made a difference in the lake level or the flows into the lake so far. The Tonto creek is not flowing and the Salt River continues at about 60 percent of its normal rate for this time of year.

Crappie anglers reported a fair to good bite recently. Most crappie anglers are fishing after sunset when the crappie are moving into more shallow water depths. The upcoming new moon will make floating crappie lights, which attract bait fish, to be very effective during this moon phase. Live minnows fished below a bobber in 15-25 feet deep water is the most successful summer night time technique.

If you're going to be fishing anywhere in Rim Country in the near future, be alert to approaching monsoon storms. These storms can be very dangerous and extremely fast moving. Always check the weather before fishing and make a plan of what you will do if you find yourself caught in a storm. These storms are usually short in duration, so sometimes the best option is to find a leeward location and ride it out.
