The May meeting location will be at Roosevelt Lake on Saturday, May 18th immediately following the Let's Talk Fishin (LTF) announcement of crappie tournament winners (estimated to occur around 4pm). The meeting will be held at Windy Hill launch area, just north of the LTF weigh-in area in the parking lot of the Badger boat ramp.  Please see the attached map.

On that same day is the Let's Talk Fishin crappie tournament also at Roosevelt Lake.

Thanks for the report Billy, wow that water temp has really moved up :dance:

Probably so Matt Tonto creek is down to like 400cfs and the Salt is still flowing in at over 3000cfs

Thanks FishHawk. Iíve been reading that the Tonto end is much clearer water than salt side. Is that what you saw?

We never went further east than Haystack. Mid lake has cleared up some in the last week. Lake is still on the rise.

I fished Alamo this past Monday, a week ago. Fished all over north end of lake from shallow to deep, found lots of floating debris to foul lines and found fishing tough to say the least. Wound up with one female crappie caught very close to surface over 50' of water. It will happen soon.

Philbie, I believe Marvin and I followed you from the I-10 turn off to the lake but we went to launch past the store whereas you took the first turn to a launch. I looked for your boat all day but never saw you. We headed all the way up the river to where the water depth was 6-8 feet. We tried that depth for an hour plus with no fish. Trolled back out toward the main lake maybe a mile and found some water 20' That is where we picked up our first crappie. We ended up trolling a 400 to 500 yard stretch back and forth the rest of the day. We were fishing double jig rigs no grubs tipped with a minnow with 12' of line out. We ended up with 17 crappie, 5 bass, and 1 grebe (what a hassle that was) We tried 15' - 18' of water with no love. Everything was in 20' not 19' or 21' just 20'
Went to the fish cleaning station and the snowbirds still camping made us feel like rock stars. How did you do it, where were you, what were you using. Every fish was a female not a single male. The eggs to me did not look close  (no blood) Water temp started about 61 and ended up 66 We worked hard for our fish 3-4 per hour but fairly consistent. We probably missed another 10 fish.

Me and Larry fished Rosey on Saturday. On the water around 10. Fished from Haystack to up in the Tonto creek. Fished jigs and beat the bank all day. We also had a tight-line rod out while jig fishing. Water temp from 60 to 67 degrees, 62-63 on average. About 1-2 foot of water visibility. We ended the day with a small mouth and lg mouth bass. Off the water around 5.

I forgot to mentioned water clarity and fish depth.  Most of the spots we fished was clear to around 3ft.  Bites were in the 15' range.  There were a high amount of tree bark and little sticks floating on the surface in some areas
