Roosevelt / Tonto Basin snow!
« Last post by Art Chamberlin on Today at 08:17 AM »
I woke up this morning to an unexpected inch of snow covering my whole yard (elv.2300') and all directions as far as the eye can see! I canceled today's fishing and the rest of the week. The Forest Service pulled the Cholla dock up on land so people could walk on  it without soaking their feet. Then they went to Windy Hill to do the same at Badger and Ringtail. When they got back to Cholla the dock entry was under water again! Good luck to Wild West Bass who are here Saturday. .......Art

Thanks for the report Dave. Heard there was a lot of debris on the lake - last time I took my boat in there with debris by the boat ramp my impeller output port got clogged twice forcing me to remove a few hoses and use a hanger/wire to unclog it.  I had to use my trolling motor to enter/exit the ramp area where all the debris was.  Did you guys use your outboard motor through the debris or trolling motor?  No issues?
We took it slow with big motor.  Most of the junk was on the surface. It did get worse as the day wore on with the wind.

Alamo / Alamo/Mule Deer Derby 2/16

We fished from 7 to 3. Tough conditions as the lake is a mess. Debris everywhere, and the lake was pretty muddy. We searched for clearer water and caught 11 crappie in 15 to 18 FOW. We tight lined minnows, and threw jigs right on top of the brush line below us. Water temps were 52 mid lake, 54 up lake.

I saw that Art, hope that helps the ground water situation up there for you.  Alamo has gained 7+ feet today, flows are slowing down but guessing it will get a total of 10' of water which will put the main ramp back in the water :headbang:. More rain predicted Monday and Thursday

Hey, how about Roosie? At 8 this a.m. Tonto Creek was running almost 10,000 cfps and rising. We got 1.8 inches of rain yesterday and last night at my house. Good luck at Alamo tomorrow. ......Art
