Rim Country Fishing Report
April 25, 2015

by James Goughnour

The anticipated stocking of Florida Strain bass into Roosevelt Lake should happen any day.

BASS: Good to excellent. As we move into May, bass will begin moving into a summer pattern meaning that they will move to deeper water during the brightest and hottest time of the day. They will return to more shallow water during feeding cycles.

CRAPPIE: Considered Poor.  Crappie fishing was called poor recently on Roosevelt Lake. Most anglers are trolling for crappie in 15-20 feet depths using a grub tail bait. One hot spot for crappie reported this week from the Windy Hill ramp to the Schoolhouse ramp.

TROUT: The trout lakes and streams on the Rim and north of Payson are providing great opportunities to those willing to make the trip. The summer trout stocking program is in full swing so all lakes and streams are now being stocked. Power-baits in all colors are reported successful as well as small crank-baits and spinner-baits.
