I gave it a 4 because the wild rainbows I caught were fabulous, and the weather or wind held out for me.

Lines down about 6:30 or so, off the water about 9:30

Started the day with a squider orange tipped with corn on one side, purple smile blade on the other side with a small flasher off side planers.

1st hit came on the purple smile spinner. but lost it, soon after the other pole went back hard, landed the buck. with in 15 mins I landed the other bow, she trashed my squider.

No action on the other rod, so I went with a repala on it, and replaced the squider with a fly.

Shortly after dropping lines I caught the koke.

Got one other hit on it before calling it a day ahead of the forecasted wind.

I was fishing out of Spring Canyon. Fished mostly along the rocks near the dam on the south side, hits and fish came off the points.

One small rocky dock left floating for launching. Was not an issue, but watch your step on the narrow dock.

We launched at Spring Canyon at 9:30. It was cold, windy, and the water was pretty rough for small boats. After putting out the usual mix of Rapalas, Kekedas, and Squidders, we trolled down to Crescent Bay, then crossed and worked up the northeast side, relatively close to shore, spending most of the day fishing across from Spring Canyon. Downriggers and leaded line rigs were down 20 feet, plus Rapalas were out on the planer boards. A gold Shad Rap nailed a couple, but the majority of the fish we caught were on Perch Kekeda files on downriggers and leaded line. There were multiple short hits and lost fish, but three of us finished the day with 14 fish. Several were 19-20" beauties, but it took 6 lines and 8 hours to do it. Fortunately the wind died down and the conditions improved through the day.

Day 2 of fishing with brother Mike, first day limited on kokes and caught some nice bows down south by Grand Coulee dam. This day we fished for walleye up the Spokane Arm with a good friend who fished a couple times with me early in the season for some kokes. Fished 25-40 ft in various spots where we marked fish, fishing was tough only brother Mike was able to put a couple in the boat including a decent size one. Had to make it a short day but will get them dialed in next time.

One very tough day on Porcupine Bay, between 3 of us we totaled 16 walleyes and 2 smallies. We kept 11 eaters and they were just 16 inchers. We jigged and bladed all the way from buoy 5 back down to Porky with only 1 small eye caught just below buoy 5 in our burbort hole. There was no best color, and we tried them all, and no one depth seemed to hold fish. This was quite different then the week before when Glenn and I had a dinkfest and caught over 55 eyes. The only real difference between the 2 weeks was that the water clarity improved. The fishing should only get better as spring approaches, one can only hope.

One last note: For those of you out there catching, keeping and cleaning 8-10 inch walleyes; do us all a favor and go perch fishing at Potholes instead, unless your intent is too actually help the WA DFW ruin the walleye fishing in Roosevelt. I know some people travel quite a ways to fish Roosevelt but catching and cleaning 8 inch walleyes is just tragic. How do I know this is happening you might ask, well all one has to do is look in the water next to the docks at Porkys boat launch. I don't know what the new fishing rules are going to be but it would be nice if they established a minimum size limit of say 14 inches to protect the future of the fishery.

Day one of a 2 day fishing trip with brother Mike from the west side of WA to fish Lake Roosevelt for kokanee, rainbow trout and walleye. First day was out of Spring Canyon fishing for kokes and bows. Fat bow right off the bat on pink kedata fly fished on the surface then dead for 2 hours. Switched up to some crazy looking lures called wee tads and easily caught our kokes and a couple more bow's. Special day since it was the first time meeting brother Mike.

This report is for last weekend. My favorite fishin buddies and I headed south out of Seven Bays.. Went all the way to Sawilla and back catching a few here and there. We found a school of Kokes in an unlikely spot north of Keller. Looked like a bait ball on the finder from the surface to about 40ft. We caught 8 averaging 14" then back on the hunt for Bows. We ended up just shy of a limit but had a blast! We released 3 or 4 beautiful natives unharmed. We only fished flies, color didn't seem to matter. This lake and it's wildlife are an absolute treasure ! Special thanks to Bill ( the photographer) his wife Kathy and brother Bob.
Good times

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.
