This report is for 2 days, 2/12 & 2/16. For 2/12 are catch was 2 kokes and 7 rbt. Had a friend from Georgia who comes to fish once a year for Roosevelt kokes and bows. Not as good in the past but good none the less. He lost a nice one up river in a spot I fish for the few but big fish, left his bail open then drag very loose. Entertaining watching him reel like a mad man as the big koke jumped around with hardware flinging all over...never boated that one. We had a few hit and gone strikes that day also, both kokes pink Kekeda flies rbt on purple kekeda flies & apex's. For 2/26 we went 8 for 8 on the bow's on purple kededa flies and apex's. No kokes, water flat and lake level came up = tough fishing. Great time with great friends. Have another friend from Tennessee coming up just to fish Roosevelt in March, this will be his 3rd year in a row visiting just to fish this amazing fishery.

A buddy and I decided to take the kids out today. Hoping to catch a few Kokanee but only managed to get 6 bows. 5 poles out with us constantly changing gear trying to find what the fish wanted. I don't think it mattered just a slow day. The kids managed 2 fish each with the biggest being 19 inches and the rest about 15. Couldn't beat the weather though. Launched out of spring canyon and fishing by 9 and done by 3.

We launched at Spring Canyon a little after 10:00, and started trolling immediately toward the dam. Orange Rapala on the side planer (this was the killer lure a week ago) got one hit, but it got off. Also had a jointed orange Rapala on the downrigger, with no success. After trolling all the way to Crescent Bay, I picked up one nice 19" rainbow on the way back up to Spring Canyon. We continued trolling up to Plum Point, catching several nice rainbows, all on worm-tipped perch Kekedas. Not much luck in Swawilla Basin, but finished the day at sunset with 7 rainbows between two of us, using four rods, almost all fish caught on the Kekedas down 10 to 20 feet. Hard to find the fish, and the "killer" lure seems to change day to day, or hour to hour.

I decided that since skiing was not so great, and that I hadn't suffered enough in the cold this winter, I would go float tubing Saturday.
Where? somewhere easy to get to and open!
I put in at 7 Bays and kicked out dragging a big olive bugger and a sculpin pattern. I drug those around for an hour or so and switched to an egg sucking black bugger, size #4 xxlong hook.
The water was about 36 degrees and as i was deciding to leave, like always, I got a hit. So, forgetting that my toes were soon to go numb, I fished on for another half hour. Again, as I was preparing to leave, I hooked something nice. After a quick fight I brought to hand a nice 20" Rainbow.
Those fish know just when to dangle a carrot in front of your nose because I fished for another 1/2 hour and as the pain form the cold was driving me towards the boat ramp I hooked another fish. This time it was a spirited 16" rainbow that jumped a few times before being led to the net.
That was enough...I couldn't feel most of my feet and the pain radiating up my legs form the cold sent me packing.
My smoker was happy with the 2 fish and I have already forgotten how cold it was.

Two of us launched at Keller and went up river a bit. Lines wet by 10. Fished for an hour and nothing so we headed down to Spring Canyon. Fished until 2:30 and tried everything. One drive by and one smaller bow off the jointed rapala. At one time I counted 18 boats but I am sure I didn't see all of them. Talked to one local who was there early and he had 3 bows and one kok. Great day of fishing but bad day at catching. Talked to 3 boats at the ramp and only 1 fish between them.
Maybe that's why I haven't been seeing many reports on here. See lots of boats heading down but not many reports.

Fished from the bank around Sterling Point on Sat. Managed 4 bows by noon. Would have had 5, but missed the second one during a double. The largest was 16". One hit marshmallows and a worm, the others were on white Power Bait and a worm. Lots of boats in the area - looked like the bite slowed down the later it got. Bites for me came in waves, several in a span of 10 minutes and then nothing for an hour. Very enjoyable day (I know it was Valentine's day ... my wife was working - its OK).

Three of us started fishing at spring canyon at 10:10. Used my new planer board and it accounted for only 2 fish. The hot lure was the jointed orange rapala on the surface. Had 2 riggers running 10 to 15' and only had 4 fish off them with numerous flies and hoochies. Then we put a roosevelt muddler all pink, with dodger on the middle pole with one color of leaded line spliced in the mono and it was hot. Ended up with 15 bows and one 17" kok and quit at 2:45. Water was 38 deg and a decent chop all day. Had worms and corn on most flies and hoochies, bare rapala's.

We launched out of Porky and fished from there all the way to Ft. Spokane and back. We caught 40+ eyes for the day with most of them being under 14 inches. The best fish for the Day was a 23 incher caught by Glenn, we kept 14 eaters between 16-23 inches. The total number of bites we actually had was probably 200 or so because those little worm stealers seemed to be everywhere.

Best depth was 35-40 FOW and a white jig head with a purple 4 inch worm was the biggest producer. Water temp was 43-44 degrees and the morning bite was better because as soon as it clouded up around 1200 the bite died and we were off the water by 1430. A beautiful sunny 50+ degree February day, who would of thunk it.

I put in at Crescent Bay around 09:30. Fished long and hard for these 5. Fought the wind soon after getting started. Banks Lake had been like glass on the way there. Late afternoon the wind died down and it was game on! I boated my first fish around 10:00 on a pink Kekeda type fly. I ran orange, pink & purple flies as well as various leader lengths with and without dodgers. I was running these from 5 to 15' on the downrigger. I ran various Rapalas on the surface line. The Orange jointed accounted for 3 fish. The purple Kekeda type with beads and smile Blade without a dodger got 3 also.

fished out of Lincoln all day. Had to work for the trout, but got 8 beauties--- trolled flies and spinners, 1.8-2.0 mph, 0-15 feet w DR. Mixed weather, but no crowds!
Sterling point was a bust, but Whitestone had fish.
