This report is for the 16th and 18th. Fished holes 45-80ft for the burbot but fishing for them has been slow. We ended up fishing for Rainbows in 100 plus ft of water with flies. The Walleye were in 50ft of water on jigs. We were able to catch a nice mixed bag both trips. The rainbows were mostly carryovers at 20-21", the walleye 14-16" and burbot 17-21" The water level is way high right now and water temps are 44 degrees. Water needs to drop along with the water temps. Good fishing everyone

I have never done well at Roosevelt on my previous 3 trips over the last 2 year's, until yesterday. Launched at Lincoln around 10, and headed down river to Sterling Point. All the other boats, about 5-7, were fairly close to the bank, so I started trolling out in the deep water with plugs while I rigged up the other rods with flies. I put out a broken back Rapala, green with an orange belly, and a 4" orange and white Rapala. The broken back got 3 fish before I put all 4 rods in the water, so I scrapped the flies altogether and ran 3 broken back, 2 green and one brown and orange. Green and orange caught 60% of the fish. I was experimenting with the 4 rod and threw on an orange and black Sebile magic swimmer. This ended up being the hot rod in the afternoon picking up 8 fish. We only kept 11 that were 16" and let the smaller ones go. We hooked around 25 fish lost more than a couple at the boat because my mom really wanted to net one and it took 4 fish for her to finally get one in there. Great weather a little bit of wind and hard hitting and feisty fish.

I decided I needed a mental health day yesterday, I headed to the storage unit to get the boat instead of work.
I went to the Lincoln launch, did not get there till 8:ish. nobody else there. seems the water was up some from the last time out. the wind was up some which made the launch fun by my self. I headed down to sterling point.
I got lines in the water around 9: trolled for 1/2 hr before the first fish. a nice 15 incher.
second fish a short time later, made the old Penn real sing, I cranked down the drag some and still this thing pull line. got him in the boat a nice "just short of" 21 (20 3/4) incher. the next was another 15, then the surface line goes off, I thought I had let myself get blown to close to some rocks but it turned out to be the other carryover.
one more with the lead and back to the launch about 10:30.
using the home made flys, orange and red on both lines. (3 week old worms that still looked good and did not seem to scare off any fish. a very relaxing day. just a few hours that made me feel like I had a vacation..
I am really enjoying the new Hand me down boat, the prickly Pair.

Got to the Keller launch about 11am. Had never fished this area before, so the reports were helpful!

Headed across the lake into the unknown.

A little after noon came the 1st fish. About 18'
Then 2nd at 12:35 15"
3rd 12:46 15'
4th 12:52 15'
5th 1:08 15"

The launch is fantastic. the area as much as.

Only saw one other boat fishing.

I fished a reddish orange repala under the boat off a downrigger 20' Ran the plug out a long ways before attaching, trolled at 2mph.

5 hook ups, 5 fish.

Does it get much better?


Grab some popcorn and climb in the boat with me.

We launched at Seven Bays at 9:45 and motored straight down to Sterling Point. Four of us fishing, three with 2-pole endorsements, so we rotated different baits using downriggers, side-planers, leaded line and straight mono. The fish hit just about anything we put out, with orange being the hot color. The shallower fish tended to be smaller (14-16 inches and fat), with the 17-22 inch carry-overs hanging out a bit deeper, but still within 15 feet of the surface. Rapalas, squidders and flies all worked. The biggest fish hit flies, and the best of those were on an orange/black Kekeda on leaded line, out three colors. Kekedas have definitely been the most productive trolling flies in my boat the last two seasons. We finished our limits within three hours, and spent a couple more hours on a leisurely cruise back up to the launch. A outstanding day on the water!

Spent the day on the water with Bob Schmidt of Macks Lure and Justin Wolff of Angler West TV catching Lake Roosevelt rainbow. We fished strictly Macks Lure baits and attractors today and caught fish on multiple presentations. We started off trolling number 8 Shad Raps behind a Masks Lure Hot Wings. The Hot Wings are a great attractor to put in front of crankbaits. The key is to use a short leader, 12-18 inches, between the crankbait and the Hot Wings. Speed for this presentation was 2.5-2.8 mph.

We then switched tactics and started to use the Downriggers. We were using the Macks Double D Dodger in front of a Cha Cha Squidder on one rod, and a Double D Dodger in front of the new Macks Lure Spindrift Trout Series bait tipped with a nightcrawler. Chartreuse was the hot color for both rigs. We slowed down to 2.0-2.5 mph for these rigs and ended up filling out our limits.

We primarily targeted the Keller area and fished in the top part of the water column all day long. We ran the Downriggers down from 20-25 feet while we flat lined trolled the crankbaits and Hot Wings which run approximately 10-12 feet deep.

Another great day at Lake Roosevelt! We launched at Seven Bays and ran down river towards Sterling. Had poles in the water about 9:30. Friends Tom and Gareld were with me and as always we have a great time together. I started with a mix of tackle and the first hit came on the orange Kekeda at 15' on the downrigger. Next fish was on a orange/black fly. Ran a Rapala for a while; no love there.
We had doubles a couple of times and one triple, what a blast! Three limits in the boat before noon biggest came in 20+". As always the top was welcome as it was rainy some of the time. The orange Kekeda was the winner for the day running 2.2 to 2.5 mph in the top 15' on leaded (three colors) or the downrigger. Sorry no pics today.

Merry Christmas everybody, New Years day will most likely be the next trip - Alan

Went to Sterling Point area Thursday morning, lines in water by 7:20, 1 st. fish in boat before we all had our lines in. Nice bow about 21 inches. It was pretty non stop till we had 3 limits in the cooler. We had 2 doubles and 1 triple hook-up. Two of of us were using mono with bright color flies tipped with worm, Ron was fishing without any bait and also did fine. Wind was blowing and rough water all morning. Had limits by 9:30 headed back to launch. We had Ron's 22 ft. StarCraft cuddy-cabin, and I want to say that was the worst time we have ever had trying to get the boat back on the trailer. Wind and waves throwing the boat around pretty bad. Most of the fish were 15-18 inch range with 3 over 20 inches. Good day out fishing despite of the weather. TIGHT LINES TO ALL---TERRY
