I have read alot of posts on here about where/when for Channels at Roosevelt lake. Here is my advice.....take it or leave it. This will work any day of the year at Roosevelt. Fish for Channel cats DEEP...ALL year long ! I NEVER put a cut bait out in any water less than 45-50 foot deep.....EVER ! I NEVER come home with less than a few fish , with at least 1 being a 10 pounder or so. I have fished Roosevelt for 24 years and can tell you for sure that the Channel cats are there in good numbers. If it gets tough , cold , and just arent hitting.....Try fishing at 75' or even 100'+. You wont catch alot of fish , but what you do get will be worth the trip. Try it ! It works !
