18 - Lake Roosevelt South End to Spokane Confluence Fishing Report

Once again launched out of Ft. Spokane and headed up the Arm to the same areas as last weekend; not the same result. Jay and I did manage to catch 20 eyes but we definitely had to work for them. Jay had the hot hand and accounted for 75% of our catch although I did catch the only real keeper at 17 inches, everything else was too small and was released. We started off jigging near Blue creek and Lapham's in 40-60 FOW and picked up a few fish but we ended up trolling smile blades. A blue smile blade was definitely the best color and most of the fish we found were in 46-48 FOW. Unlike last weekend we never had a bite from a burbot which was very surprising considering our success catching them last weekend. Hopefully the rain lets up and we can get out this upcoming weekend.

Don't let one slow day get you down. :) I have a feeling you'll be posting another highly successful report very soon. You always do. I just might be out there soon myself.

Can never predict what the bite will be like. On days like that I'm just grateful to be on the water enjoying life. Thanks for your report!
