Conditions : ROOSEVELT LAKE: - Bass fishing on Roosevelt Lake is good. There is a strong reaction bite from safe light until about 10 o’clock in the morning and again in the evening after sunset until dark.

Spinnerbaits, chatter-baits, top-water baits are successful; however, most experienced anglers reported shad-colored crankbaits as the “go to” bait. During the warmest part of the day, the bite slows considerably so anglers prefer a dropshot, Texas rig or Carolina rig technique. Artificial baits including translucent worms such as a Roboworm morning dawn, lizards and crawdads were all recently reported successful by experienced anglers.

Anglers continue to report seeing large schools of shad bait fish that at times surround the boat. For the first time in several years, schools of bluegill fish were also reported, which is a very positive sign that the fishery is improving.

The high water level for Roosevelt Lake this year was just less than 72 percent full. Currently the level stands at 69 percent full as water is now being drawn down for downstream use and to assist in dispersing the persistent golden algae blooms in Apache, Canyon and Saguaro Lakes. The water clarity continues to improve in Roosevelt Lake and is now being called “clear.” The daytime water temperature is reaching the upper 70s.

Crappie anglers reported poor fishing conditions recently on Roosevelt Lake. Even experienced crappie anglers are struggling to locate crappie. Crappie prefer the warmer and more stable weather and will congregate into large schools at this time of year. Hopefully, within a few weeks, the larger schools of crappie will begin to appear.
