Outdoor writer Dave Graybill explores Lake Roosevelt for winter trout

Here is the latest fishing report from Dave Graybill, longtime Eastern Washington outdoor radio host and angler:

I made another trip up to Lake Roosevelt to see if could get some more of those nice triploid rainbow, and I had mixed results.  The first day I fished the afternoon from an area known affectionately as “Geezer’s Beach”, which is on the north side of Roosevelt just above the dam.

This is a very popular area for shore fishing, as you can drive right down to the water.  A Colville Tribal license is required to fish here, but people are willing to pay the fee for the convenience of this particular spot.

There was one angler there when I arrived and another one set up while we were fishing.  Still another stopped by to see how we were doing.

However, the fishing here was very slow last week.  One veteran angler said the fish hadn’t shown up here yet, implying that it will get better later in the winter.

The next day I went back to Spring Canyon Park and was joined by another angler who had read my report.  Fishing was very slow that day, and he got one rainbow and I got two.  One of my fish was 22 inches, though, so I called it a success.
