18 - Lake Roosevelt South End to Spokane Confluence Fishing Report
We launched out of Fort Spokane about 8:30 and headed up the arm. A little bit past the Porcupine launch we started jigging 5/8 oz red heads with purple crawdads in some deep holes, 80-90 fow. We had to hunt around for a while but then my buddy Mark got a bite and boated the first burbot. The bite picked up pretty quickly after that, and in no time we both had a limit. What a great day, the temps were mild, the wind was nonexistent, and the water surface was glass.
After two years of not getting to fish for burbot this was a trip to remember. I can't wait to go back.

Thanks for the good report, I want to be getting after some of those Burbot too. We saw you go by and then took out just after you.
Next time out I will be looking for some of those "holes".

I have heard they are good eaters. How is best in your view?

Rainbow Trout would be way down the list like #15
