When Tom Verschuren and I got our two-fish limits at Rufus Woods Reservoir so quickly, we loaded up the truck and drove up to Spring Canyon Park on Lake Roosevelt. I have had good luck in the winter fishing from the shore here. It would be a new experience for Tom. He was impressed with the fast action and quality of the trout we caught on Rufus Woods and was eager to see what we could do on Lake Roosevelt. We set up just down the beach, toward Grand Coulee Dam, from the swimming beach at Spring Canyon. We stuck our rod holders in the sand and tossed our bait out as far as we could, hoping it would land in at least eight to ten feet of water. We didn’t have to wait long. I soon had a very chunky 16-inch rainbow on the beach. Right after that Tom’s rod went off. We discovered that if we weren’t getting a bite our bait had been stolen. In less than an hour we had six rainbow of 14 to 16 inches in the bag, which combined with the two we got at Rufus Woods, completed our daily limit of ten trout. If you are looking for something to do with friends and family over the Thanksgiving Weekend, you couldn’t go wrong with a trip to Rufus Woods Reservoir or Lake Roosevelt to do some shore fishing for rainbow.
