Conditions : ROOSEVELT LAKE: - (2,106 feet, 52-percent full)

Spring bass fishing conditions on Roosevelt Lake continue to be excellent according to local experienced anglers. Bass continue to be caught on chatter-baits, square-bill crankbaits, and spinnerbaits. Top-water baits such as a Zara Spook can be really effective in the early morning until the sunlight hits the surface of the water.

Large numbers of bass are in 20 feet of water or less. The lake level currently stands at 52 percent full with both the Salt River and Tonto Creek flowing at about 30 percent of their normal rates for this time of year. The ambient temperature at the lake is nearing 90 degrees and the water temperature is now above 70 degrees on clear days. The clarity of the water improved dramatically as the winds subsided; however, the clarity will become worse if the windy conditions return.

The full moon phase that we are in right now has significantly improved the crappie fishing. The spawn is happening right now and many more crappie are schooling in 25 feet depths after completing spawning activities. Most crappie anglers are trolling for crappie using small 2-inch curly tail grub-tail baits. Live minnows are also popular springtime crappie baits. The east side of Windy Hill continues to be a hot spot for crappie fishing this spring.
