Roosevelt Lake Fishing Report
"News flash. A Tucson angler name Erik Mitchell caught a 14-pound largemouth bass at Roosevelt Lake -- it was officially weighed by Game and Fish staff in Tucson. The toad was 27.5 inches long and was caught in 15 feet of water (probably staging for the spawn). I wouldn't be surprised to see Rosy produce a new state record this year."

Directions to Roosevelt Lake Arizona
You can take the historic Apache Trail 41.5 mi from Mesa for a scenic drive down Hwy 88 all the way to the dam at Roosevelt Lake. Hwy 88 is not that rough, you do not need a 4 wheel drive truck to take it although parts are not paved so avoid it during bad weather. It' s definitely worth the drive with steep cliffs and desert terrain as you pass by Canyon and Apache Lake. An alternative route is to take the 87 north out of phoenix to the 188 south along the horse of Roosevelt that will eventually intersect with the 60 to take you back to Phoenix. This route is all Paved and takes you almost to the pines of Pason back down the the old mining town of Miami.
