I checked in with my buddy who works for the Colville Tribe on the fishing at Rufus Woods Reservoir. He said that he is seeing an improvement in the fishing on the big reservoir. There was a boat out for three days and took home limits of triploids and one was over 10 pounds. Last Monday he had already seen fish taken from the rock point off Highland Road and at Brandts Landing. One of the fish was just over 5 pounds and the rest were 2.5-pounders. He also said that there was a boat fishing the net pens over the weekend and they caught a bunch. Most were in the 3- to 4-pound range in size. After hearing his report, I jumped online and checked to see if the water was dropping on Lake Roosevelt. That can make a huge difference in the fishing on Rufus Woods. Sure enough, the water is finally coming down. This is not only good news for those who like to fish Rufus Woods but also those who are after the giant kokanee and rainbow on Lake Roosevelt. If they keep lowering the water up there the fishing will go into high gear. I can’t wait to get back up there and get after them!
This graph shows that they are finally dropping the water level on Lake Roosevelt. Great news!
