Rim Country Fishing Report July 25, 2015
By: James Goughnour

Due to the monsoons, the water level at Roosevelt Lake remained at 43% full this past week.

: We're in the summer fishing conditions on Roosevelt Lake which means hotter day time temperatures, deeper water fishing and in most instances, smaller bait presentations. A deep water drop-shot technique using a 4" Roboworm or a slow falling 1/4 oz spider jig are the types of baits commonly used during the summer. If these techniques don't sound too inviting to you, you'll need to get to the lake at first or last light. During the first and last hour, reports indicate that bass are chasing shad actively and can be caught on several reaction baits such as crank-baits, jerk-baits, frogs and spinner-baits. An option to fishing at first light or dusk is to get to the lake at 4AM and fishing until 9AM. Safe light is getting a little later each day and now is around 5:15 in the morning. Fishing until 9AM allows you to experience the morning action and still gets you off the water before the temperatures become to overwhelming. In addition, there will be a full moon on July 31 which helps the fishing conditions and perhaps more importantly, helps us humans see a little better during the night.

: Crappie fishing reports have been fair recently. Crappie typically are in schools this time of year, always near structure such as a ledge or overhang or near cover. Examples of cover would be brushes, trees, logs or anything not natural to the bottom contour of the lake. A small jig-head suspended in a water depth of 25-35 feet, will get you to prime crappie locations.

: Late July and early August are premium times to fish for trout in the Rim lakes and streams. The weather is perfect and the AZGFD summer trout stocking program ensures there is an abundant supply of rainbow trout waiting to be caught. If you haven't visited one of the Rim lakes or streams mark your calendar for a weekend during August. You won't be disappointed.

:Rim Custom Rods here in Payson builds custom fishing rods and can repair any broken rod. In many cases, the rod can be repaired in minutes while you wait. Rim Country Custom Rods can be reached at 468-0263 or at our website
