THE WHITE ELEPHANT
Fishing Report for Week of 01/12/2019
Lake Roosevelt: When weather permits, fishing has been very good for rainbows and action is picking up for kokanee. Rainbow action has been good from Gifford to Sawilla Basin. Trolling hoochies, Muddler Minnow flies, and baited bead rigs are all working efficiently. Fish are still in the upper 20’ of the water column. The fish are beautiful and run anywhere from 15-20 plus inches. Some anglers are baiting their lures to entice a kokanee bite. The reservoir appears to be dropping at report time
Lake Roosevelt Level: 1284.5’
Due to inclement weather, no other reports were received during this past week.
"Tip of the Week"- during this sub-zero weather, when dragging your boat out of the boat launch at the lake, please let it drain on the edge of the ramp into the lake to prevent freezing slippery conditions so that the boat ramp does not become unusable.
