Fished Saturday in our annual get together of friends for bragging rights of who can catch the biggest fish. Launched at Fort Spokane shortly after it got light and went straight to Sterling Point to troll our usual area and nothing happening there so we moved on down river to one of the bays we like. Beached the boat and brother Ron ,nephew Dean's son Dylan and I put on marshmallow and worm and casted out and let it sit on bottom. Right from the first cast we were on fish. Nothing real big, but caught 12 real nice fish to take home. The largest being 19-20 incher. No bragging rights for our boat this year, but still had lots of fun. Maybe next time we can do a little bragging !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!TIGHT LINES ---Terry

Beautiful day! Calm water and sunshine and I even got out fished by the Wife. She caught three to my ZERO.

Lake is LOW; I highly suggest good lug sole boots and a walking stick for the steep up/down hike to the water on the sand and rocks.

This was my 5th trip to Roosevelt since the beginning of this year and fishing for anything (trout and Silvers) has been slow up till this time. I launched at Lincoln at 7 Am headed to White Stone and tolled for about an two hours and no luck, the water temp was 36 degrees. So I pulled into the bay across from white stone, the creek was flowing pretty good and the water temp was 46 degrees there and I went just past the murky water edge and anchored in about 30 ft of water and started casting a worm tipped with Gulp corn and scented with krill oil added a slip weight above the swivel and that is when the fun began. The two of us caught two limits in two hours, one was a very nice 22 inch and most averaged about 18. My guess was the fish were along the shore line and inlets looking for food and the warmer temps in the bay made the difference. Sorry no pictures left my cell phone at home.

Put in at Ft. Spokane about 8:30 ran down to the Keller area north. Running flies, Hootchies and Apexs all different depths. No bites. One Rainbow about 2 o'clock, so on that note headed home.

Water temp was 39 degrees and cloudy. Spokane arm is really cloudy.

Nice to get rid of the cabin fever and run some fresh gas through the motors anyway.

Maybe this report will get me off the Hook. Ha! Ha! Visited the fish market yesterday!  Wow, still wondering how I could be so fortunate!  Caught 4 fish in two hours, very windy conditions but not too cold.  The 1st fish was about 15".  The next one was close to 20".  The 3rd one was very special, a wild redband native fish close to 22" (my guess).  I used the phone to photo it and cut the leader to let it go. Wild ones have to be released.  I did not touch the fish, probably increasing  it's chance of survival. 

Thanks very much for all the positive comments on my last report of 3-7-2017!

I decided it was time to dust off the boat and check on the trout and kokanee, after that awful winter of no fishing. We launched at Spring Canyon at 9:45, joining around 20 other boaters with the same idea. We got some lines in the water right outside the launch, and immediately picked up a nice clipped rainbow on a chartreuse hoochie that was still just under the surface, waiting for me to drop the downrigger ball. Gonna be an easy day, we thought... Trolled down toward the dam and looped back up to the launch, six lines in the water (leaded, downriggers, planer board) covering depths from 5 to 25 feet and not a nibble. Trolled past the launch and headed toward Plum Point, and picked up another keeper on the hoochie. Crossed over after passing Plumb Point and went through Swawilla Basin several times, caught a couple nice wild rainbows, and a keeper. One more keeper on the way back to the launch, and a couple drive-bys that didn't stay hooked. Flat lined Rapalas (lime green/chartreuse and orange/gold) and the hoochie (one caught on the surface and one on downrigger around 20 feet) were the producers. No sign of kokanee, and 4 keepers for 9 hours of fishing 6 lines. Much slower fishing than we had expected, but a great day on the water.

Arrived at Spring Canyon launch at 7:30 and we were trolling towards Plum Point by 8:00. The weather was overcast with almost no wind and light rain on and off. We had five lines out. Two on sidewinder planers, two on the down riggers and one flat line out the back. We fished all our lines from the surface to down to 20 ft. Our first bite came as we rounded the bend near Plum point. It was a nice fin clipped rainbow that was almost 2 pounds. We crossed over towards Swawilla Basin and caught another keeper Rainbow and one real nice 20 inch kokanee. The Kokanee sure put on a show, jumping multiple times and pulling out drag. It weighed in at 3pounds 10oz. After that we trolled back toward the launch with a few more bites but no more fish in the boat and headed home at 5:00. We tried Rapalas and Flicker Shad as well as an assortment of Mac's and Shasta tackle spinners and hoochies but all the fish came on pink hoochies. We tipped them with maggots and used Anise Krill sent. It was a fun day on the water but the fishing was pretty slow. Three fish in 8 hours. We were hoping to find some more Kokanee but I guess that we will have to try again next time.

For all of you out there who were unlucky, the fish do not always jump in the boat and I can sympathize. Seems like for every great trip to Roosevelt there is a matching poor one in my records. The water was cold, muddy and drawn down last Saturday. I was fishing solo and only ran downriggers with flies, hoochies and spinners. I never fished above 10 feet, which may have helped get bites. I also did not stick to a spot as I fished from Spring Canyon down and back, Swawilla and the bluffs at Keller. A big zero fish. I just see the coaches in Happy Gilmore laughing and saying better luck next time, as I throw a rod at them across the lake. Not really though as peace was in my soul, and an exposed tree at the bluffs gave me some treasure. Thank you to whoever donated the vance's flashers and apex, and if you are reading this I will get them back to you!

Tight lines,

TK

Launched my Tracker solo at 0600 out of Ft Spokane and went up the Arm to the first island on the left. I caught 6 or so on a silver blade bait in 29 to 32 FOW. They were hanging on an edge and I just let the current push me down river as I moved left and right to stay at that depth. Next I went further upriver to the second island on the right and here a black jig head with a chartreuse grub worked the best. The eyes were up on the point at the upriver end of the island in 25 to 40 FOW. After half a dozen eyes I went down river to casino flats and worked an edge in 41 to 43 FOW and picked up 4 or 5 more eyes. I had a lot of hits from little dinks but they were too small to get a hook into with the jigs I was dragging down current. A chartreuse jig head with a pumpkin chartreuse tail senko got me the most bites. I once again went back upriver to the islands to see if I could find some bigger fish. There are large chunks of ice coming down river so be careful if you head further up the Arm. I did see some ice sheets still clinging to the shore line in bays upriver from the islands. All told I caught at least 30 eyes but only caught 9 of any size one of which was 26 inches and 5.5 lbs. that I released. I also caught one very chunky smallie on a jig. Water temp up the Arm was 38 to 39 degrees and pretty stained with all of the runoff we've been having.

Went to the "Fish Market" (see my report for 3/4) Tuesday morning, arriving at 8:30.  Had my first bite 5 minutes later.  The first fish was rather small 14 1/2".  The biggest was 20 1/2", the middle one 20".  I was done fishing by 9:30.  Could have caught my limit of five but I did not want to clean more, we like to eat fresh fish when we can and Judy had an afternoon hair cut coming up so I went home.  We had fish and salad last night for dinner.
