Roosevelt Lake, or Theodore Roosevelt Lake is one of the biggest bodies of water in the state. It is also famous for producing some of the biggest catches in the state, Its not unusual to see a 10 lb plus size largemouth and a 25 lb plus Flat Head Catfish come out of the lake. Roosevelt lake impounds the Salt River making it the first in a chain of four Lakes; Roosevelt, Apache, Canyon and Saguaro.
