    I like Roosevelt, Bartlett and then back to any of the saltriver lakes. I never fished San Carlos or Martinez lake but I here they're exellent for flats.

    Roosevelt is tops but we are trying to learn San Carlos so we will see. I haven't fished any of the others so I can't give an opinion on them.

    It all really depends on what your fishing for. But since this is th BOC I'll have to say Roosevelt. I'm sure you'll get all kinds of different answers but i think it's mostly personal preference. The all have there pros and cons

    I think it's the places we know best are the ones we love for me Bartlett. I've tried Roose and it was fun as we caught a 20 in the river but with the water rise it's not quite as friendly for my style of fishing, but Roose has the biggest fish. Bartlett I fish with a boat to get to a favorite shore and set the chairs up have a cold one catch bait all day for the night bite.
    Absolute heaven!!!

    I would have to say rosie, for the location and size. san carlos is also good for cats,and espically for crappie, apache seems like a good lake but i never have luck there!! if you live in tucson patty is the way to go its close and theres flats and channels, bass, etc..

    me and a couple friends went to roosevelt this last weekend, but everywhere we went there were logs and debris along the shore and all the boat ramps were loaded down so we left there and went to catfish point, i think they are going to have to rename that spot carp point. a couple of our friends went to bartlett and they caught loads of catfish in the 10 to 20 pound range.
