Rim Country Fishing Report Mar. 28, 2015  
By: James Goughnour 
Rim Country Custom Rods 

Bass fishing is excellent on Roosevelt and Apache Lakes. The calm winds helped anglers find bedding bass and the spawn is in full swing. Many anglers reported that the large mouth bass are spawning in 5 ft. water or less while small mouth bass were seen spawning in deeper water, in the 15-20 ft. range. The major spawn should continue for the next couple of weeks especially with the approaching full moon April 4th. Spawning will last for some bass well into June so don't give up on shallow water fishing just because the majority of bass have spawned. I received reports that anglers caught 20 bass in the first four hours after sunrise using reaction types baits such as crank-baits, spinner-baits and chatter-baits. Slow moving baits such as a weightless Senko and Roboworms using a drop-shot technique were also reported successful. A few reports of top water success were received but most experienced anglers say a good top water bite is still a few weeks away. 
Crappie fishing was called fair on Roosevelt Lake and good on Apache Lake. The crappie spawn is underway so most crappie anglers are targeting shallow water of 5 ft. or less. Reported hot spots for crappie are Windy Hill, near the Badger ramp and the shallow water behind the Roosevelt Marina. When crappie fishing, always look for the shady or dark areas adjacent to cover, many times that is where spawning crappie will be located. Bait suggestions include a Lil' Fishy bait which is a 1" minnow imitation bait and a 2" grub tail bait on a 3/16 oz jig head hook.
