Here is the latest fishing report from Dave Graybill, longtime Eastern Washington outdoor radio host and angler:
I spent two days fishing Lake Roosevelt out of Spring Canyon. My fishing partners Shane Magnuson and Eric Granstrom and I found the water choppy on Wednesday and the rainbow bite fairly slow.
We had four fish in the boat when we were chased off the water by a snow storm that limited our visibility to the point that I first headed toward the dam instead of the launch at Spring Canyon.
It snowed through the afternoon and early evening, but the next day was mostly clear and calm. We found the fishing better, too. In about four hours we landed eight nice rainbow, ranging in size from 14 to 17 inches.
We missed a few hits and lost a couple as well. It began snowing again in the early afternoon, so we called it quits. We came home with a dozen nice rainbow, and I have several meals of these excellent eating triploid trout in the freezer.
I would like to plan another trip to Lake Roosevelt. I would still like to figure out how to catch some of the big kokanee up there.
I am hoping they will be on the bite later this winter.
