After a great day of kokanee fishing on Lake Roosevelt with Austin Moser, I still had time to try fishing from shore at Keller. I figured that I could put out a couple of rods while I filleted my catch of rainbow and kokanee taken earlier in the day. I set up two rods on the shore off the park just down river from the Keller launch. I rigged the rods with slip sinkers and baited them with marshmallow and shrimp. I just got back to the picnic table when I noticed one of the rod tips jerking. I barely got to it before the rod holder tipped completely over and went into the water. I could tell that it was a good fish, and when I pulled it up on the bank I estimated it at 18 inches. Last year my brother in law Tome Verschuren and I took two limits from this same spot. The rainbow ranged in size from 16 to 21 inches. The rainbow from Lake Roosevelt are all clipped and are triploids. They are probably the best eating fish in the state. You don’t need a boat to take advantage of the great fishing in the winter on Lake Roosevelt.
