Fishing for Lake Roosevelt rainbow is one of things to enjoy in the winter, but I may have started early. Tom Verschuren and I have had great days fishing from shore for these tasty triploids, both at Spring Canyon and at Keller. Although it is a little further to drive, I chose to try Keller on Tuesday. When we arrived at our favorite spot in the Keller campground we found another angler already set up. He didn’t have anything yet but said he had limited a week earlier in a couple of hours. Maybe it was the good weather. It was one of those beautiful clear and sunny days without any wind. We cast out our shrimp and marshmallow baits and waited for a bite. And waited and waited. I decided to run up to the truck and that’s when one of my rods went off, and Tom reeled in a 20 ½-inch trout. We got two more hits that didn’t hook up, and that was it. We were disappointed but really enjoyed the wonderful winter day in this scenic spot on Lake Roosevelt. We’ll try Spring Canyon later on. Fishing really improves as the water level drops.
