Roosevelt / Re: First time crappie fishing at Roosevelt lake
« Last post by Fishless on May 22, 2020, 06:45 AM »
Your crazy to go on a holiday weekend :dontknow: but if you do the spawn is over, kayak out on the main lake could be dangerous with all the boats (and many of them with out common sense). A safe choice I think would be to launch at Indian point ramp and paddle (not that far of a trip) up into the Tonto creek end of the lake, it is a forest up there with trees and flooded brush but the ski boats and pleasure boats don't venture up there. Lots and lots of submerged trees to fish with jigs or minnows, work your way around the trees and if you find a crappie to bite probably will have a school there to fish for a while. I would just work your way through the area, heck even if the crappie are not biting the bass should be and with a kayak it would be a neat way to explore the area.

Have not done it in years but I know people in the past have had good success fishing the tires around the marina at night with lights, can not fish inside the marina but lots of crappie used to hang out around the tires

Sorry, just saw this.  I haven't been to Roosevelt in about a year so can't give too much advise.  I know that there are areas around Windy Hill that produced last year as well as Salome cove.  And perhaps some of the coves on north side from Windy Hill to Schoolhouse.  I haven't been up there since water level reached 98% - have you headed up river on the Salt end?  There is another post in this Roosevelt Lake forum with similar question you may follow that.  And here's swikmo's report from May 5: http://www.azcrappie.com/forum/index.php/topic,4390.0.html

User swikmo and Art Chamberlain both may have some tips, but don't know if they'll see this post.  Bruce Fishless, any tips?

Pickup minnows from Liar's Korner in east Mesa or Ron in Globe (480-694-5207) that may help.  I'm not even sure which would be better for ya, Tonto or Salt end.

Great news! Also do they sell annual Tonto Passes again? Mine is expiring this month.

The road to Bartlett Flats and the Yellow Cliffs ramp was opened last weekend. You can either shore launch on the flats, or use the ramp.

Hello, are there any other ramps open already? Also is it now possible to reach Flats and launch a fishing kayak from there?

It's a shame what has happened with Bartlett with all the traffic now.  Anybody try fishing under lights at night yet?  Getting pretty hot now.

Hey guys!  I'm new here, first post.  I've had some success for night crappie up the salt around the bend from schoolhouse.  Looking to try some new places.  Anybody?
