    Hello all, I am going to Roosevelt Lake tonight for an overnighter. I have fished some on the upper salt river side of the lake but i was curious about the orange peel area on the other side of the lake.I may take my little boat or possibly fish from shore tonight. Have any of you had luck on this side of the lake catching channel cats or flatheads? I am happy to catch nice size channel cats, I have not had an opportunity to catch a big flathead as of yet. Orange Peel side of lake or upper salt side, Any ideas? thanks to all!
