Lake Roosevelt Fishing

Kokanee and Trout

Lake Roosevelt is known for record size Kokanee and Trout throughout the winter months. Thanks to the cooperative net pen project on Lake Roosevelt, one to four million fry/fingerling Kokanee Salmon and 750,000 catchable Rainbow Trout triploids are released annually. These fish feed on plankton called daphnia on the open waters of the reservoir which result in their beautiful, tasty red meat! The Rainbow Trout is a great strain of fish for smoking due to the extra fats in its meat. We target both Kokanee and Trout with various trolling tactics, baiting them with scented corn, nightcrawlers and even shrimp! We can help you catch these tasty fish YEAR ROUND!

Walleye

Walleye were introduced to Lake Roosevelt around the 1950’s and became well-known by 1969. Walleye have a bounty of food in the reservoir, feeding on small bait fish and crawdads. We catch this family favorite in BIG numbers during the Walleye Run in the Spring. We follow the Walleyes year-round, targeting them off the bottom by vertical jigging and trolling at depths from 20’ to 160’ feet deep! Depending on the time of year, we know when the bite is hot and when it’s not! Best months to join us is March thru June!
