Fishing is rated as good

Roosevelt Lake - Tonto National Forest, AZ

by Arizona Game & Fish Department

At Roosevelt Lake (report courtesy of Sportsman's Warehouse), fishing is rated as good. Try Crankbaits early, Buzz Baits, Drop Shots, 4- to 7-inch Texas Rigged Worms, and Texas Rigged brush hogs for bass. Crappie fishing can be good around brush in 5-10 feet of water. Use minnows or 1/16-ounce jigs with 2-inch Kalins BBC or John Deer Green around trees to load up with crappie. For catfish, try stink bait (dips and nuggets) and circle hooks.
