Rim Country Fishing Report May 23, 2015 
By James Goughnour 

BASS: Bass fishing on Roosevelt Lake improved significantly since the cold fronts have moved out of Rim Country. The bass have moved back into their normal Springtime shallow pattern. Many bass remain in a post spawn phase and feeding heavily as they rebuild strength after spawning. In the early morning, Spinner-baits, Chatter-baits, and shallow running crank-baits were reported successful recently. Afternoon fishing was reported successful in 15-25 water depth using a slow presentation bait such as a jig in a crawfish color, green pumpkin colored Senkos or a translucent colored Roboworms. 

TROUT: The stocking of Rim Country lakes and streams is underway with great reports being received from trout anglers. Trout that are stocked in our lakes and streams come from hatcheries managed by the AZGFD. Power-baits in all colors are successful as well as small crank-baits and spinner-baits. 

WOLVES: On Guard in Overgaard - If you're heading to the Heber-Overgaard area, there have been at least two wolf-human encounters during the last month. According to the local Heber-Overgaard Mogollon Rim News, two dogs have been attacked by wolves and one wolf literally walked past a woman on a residential road while staring her down. Elk are now routinely being killed by wolves throughout Rim Country and recently born wolf pups keep adult wolves on high alert at all times. The days of letting your dog off the leash and running ahead of you in the forest are over for Rim Country visitors.
