Lake Roosevelt is situated in the upper Columbia River gorge and runs along over 154 miles along the river. Numerous lakes and creeks empty into the lake, giving you even more options when it comes to walleye fishing. The best walleye fishing tends to be along inside turns of the Columbia River that run with the lake or wherever the lake bends around a corner. Walleye tend to group here. Additionally, any quarter mile stretch of beach on the river that has a drop off will also contain groups of walleye throughout the day and in the evenings.

If you prefer walleye fishing in deeper depths, the front of the lake, which is the up river side, is deeper than the back of the lack. The walleye congregate in this area in an effort to catch prey as it comes into the lake from the river. While you can easily catch walleye at the 20 to 30 foot depth, some of the best walleye fishing is down around 50 feet. Veteran walleye anglers have had the best success at this level although there has been walleye found as deep as 97 feet. If you are a night fisher, the area across from Clayton Point on Lake Roosevelt contains sand flats and the fish congregate here. Walleyes move through the lake into the deep areas during the day and stay in the shallows at night.

While standard rigs and jigs are great for the summer months, winter anglers at the lake have found that the presentation at this time of year should include troll bottom bouncers and Lindy rigs. This is because walleye get sluggish during the winter. You need to fish slowly in order to bring the fish in during the winter months, using tackle such as dragging jigs with blades in water of 35 feet. Mack's Lure Smile Blades are popular for this. You should shorten your leaders by 18 to 20 inches when bottom walking.

Additionally, winter walleye fishing on Lake Roosevelt should be done from a boat so that you can toss the jigs far enough away. This helps attract the fish, making the curious and hopefully, on your line. Artificial bait is all right to use at this time of year, but if the fish are not biting add a night crawler to your jig head. You may also need to lower the size of the jib head to help bring in the fish.

One thing professional walleye anglers say about fishing at Lake Roosevelt in the winter is to set your line if you think you may have bite. Remember, the fish move slower this time of year and even the slightest tug of the line could indicate a bite.
