FLW College Fishing to take on Roosevelt

FLW College Fishing to take on Roosevelt
Several anglers started their day by working small bays with flooded timber.

ROOSEVELT, Ariz. - FLW College Fishing is headed to Roosevelt Lake Feb. 23 for the second of four stops in the Western Conference. Up to 50 college teams will be competing for a top award of $2,000 and a berth in the Western Conference Invitational tournament.

"Overall the lake is down about 30 to 40 feet from the last time we had a tournament there," said Evinrude pro Brett Hite of Phoenix, Ariz. "It looks like it's going to be a real tough tournament. The lake has come up around 7 feet and it's still on the rise right now. This has caused stained and cold water conditions which are not the best for fishing.

"But what's nice about Roosevelt is that you can fish deep or shallow," Hite continued. "My advice to the college anglers is to go out and fish your strengths and whatever type of cover that you like to fish. Roosevelt has a little bit of everything."

Hite predicts the fish will still be in their late-winter or early pre-spawn patterns and weights of 10-12 pounds should be enough to be in the hunt.

Anglers will take off from the Cholla Recreation Site in Roosevelt, Ariz., at 7 a.m. Saturday. Weigh-in will be held at the recreation site beginning at 1 p.m. Takeoff and weigh-in are free and open to the public.
