Rim Country Fishing Report July 4, 2015
By: James Goughnour

TROUT: The AZGFD continues to stock thousands of Rainbow Trout each week in Canyon and Christopher Creeks, East Verde River, Haigler Creek, Tonto Creek, Willow Springs and Woods Canyon. Reported successes when using powerbait, salmon eggs, small crankbaits and small spinner baits. If you are a fly angler, dry flies in a cicada or nymph imitation were recently reported successful. Most trout fishing action is early morning and evening. Please contact the AZGFD if you catch at tagged fish. BASS: Roosevelt Lake is fair to good depending on the day. Summer patterns and traditional summertime baits are still producing good numbers and quality of bass. Baits recommended include Senkos, ribbon tail worms, curly tail and lizard imitations. And the areas recommended are the main lake points in 20-35 feet water which are popular for summer time fishing. The recent full moon made for some excellent night time bass fishing conditions. Experienced anglers are fishing those same locations after sunset but using darker colored baits. CRAPPIE: Reported to be fair again this past week. Most crappie anglers are taking advantage of the full moon to stay on the lake well after dark. If you're crappie fishing during the day, look for crappie near cover in 20-25 ft. A vertical fishing technique allows the angler to drop the bait into the middle of a school of crappie. Any 2" curly tail grub on a jig-head will work. If you're fishing for crappie during the night, a live minnow suspended about 2 feet below a split-shot weight is always the best bait for night time crappie fishing.
