    Hey Lonny, I have been going to Roosevelt about once a week, but most of my reports are trip reports not fishing reports, thanks on info above diversion dam I may try that sometime. Mike

    Went last night, fished a bit below diversion dam, nothing,, moved on to the bank of the main lake on the west/north??? end,, severly skunked:sad2:
    caught one bluegill, put it on one of my heavy rigs, and something buzzed my reel but, wasn't "committed". Happened twice and last time, got away with my "gill"
    water is up looks like...

    wow! sounds like a great trip! did you use live blue gill on all of them? also just wondering what part of the lake you were at, i dont want exact spots, but it would be nice to know a new area to start looking. lastly, how late in the year is the catfishing decent? thx in advance!

    i always fish tonto end its close to home,live bluegills work the best.orange peel, indian point at boat ramp are both good. i fish year round for them.they don't ever quit eating. its just what kind of weather you can take when fishing for them

    The bite has to be off at Rosie......we caught nothing in 4 days. We always catch bass or something. I did have fun we took the boat and my one man fish cat. The lake is up and so clean...crystal clean...but no fish. Tell you one thing it was hotter than he-- to be out on the lake mid day. I am night fisher person. We are off to Yuma this morning ....I will be fishing in the canals somewere tonight.
