Fishing is rated as good

by Arizona Game & Fish Department

At Roosevelt Lake (report courtesy of Sportsman’s Warehouse), fishing is rated as good. Anglers are having luck with crankbaits early, buzz baits, Whopper Stoppers, drop shots, 4-Inch Texas-rigged Worms, and Texas-rigged brushhogs for bass. Crappie fishing can be good around brush in 5-10 feet of water. Use minnows or 1/16-ounce jigs with 2" Kalins BBC or John Deer Green around trees to load up with crappie.

Also at Roosevelt Lake, angler Swik M. reported, "Fished Rosie one day last week and ended up with eight fish, including a nice crappie that came on a flicker shad. The bass were caught mostly on zombie & sangria sunset 5150' fished super slow on drop shot at a depth of 15 feet.
