COLUMBIA RIVER — The level of Lake Roosevelt continues to rise significantly every day and a few anglers — very few at this point — are finding more boat launches open — and the fishing isn't bad, either.
The water temperature in the Spokane Arm was 57 degrees today. We caught walleye and smallmouth bass.
Thanks to my fishing partners, Jim Kujala and Dave Ross, I know that there are some pretty good size walleye and smallmouth bass in the water.
And if it weren't for them seeding my fish bag a little, I wouldn't be able to tell you that there's roughly twice as much meat on a 14-inch walleye as there is on a 12-incher.
