Roostertales Willow Springs Results

The Roostertales Bass Club held its annual July Tourney on Willow Springs Lake- Saturday July 13. It was a beautiful day following a rainy Friday. Sunburns all around. Water temperature was in the 72 degree range and fish seemed to be completely off the spawn. Sixteen teams fished with 12 teams showing 5 fish limits. Sacks were dominated by smallmouth, but some largemouth were caught. The winning weight by Nelson and Carrol was 6.63#. Big fish were 3.93 # (SMB), 3.79 # (SMB), and 3.40 # (LMB) and were caught on dropshot, rattletrap, and dropshot respectively. Many fish were also caught with various jerk baits. Our next tourney is a night event at Roosevelt on August 24. We will be meeting at BassPro, 7 pm on August 19 before the event. Come and visit with us at the meeting, and join our club if you have interest.

We were kicking around the idea of adding Willow Springs to our schedule for next year, a break out of the heat. Given the small sacks you guys had, do you think your club will want to do it again?

72 degrees can give me a small sack.

LOL - We had 5 fish for 2lbs. You should have seen those lunkers. They were so small that they were swimming through the holes in the divider of our live well. First time I've ever fished for bass out of Willow Springs. Hopefully will be my last.

We had 4.50 lbs and worked our tails off. However, if you hit it right, I know you can pull 5 for 10-12 lbs. or better. Beautiful lake and weather was nice, but our club has run into some nasty lightning/rain/hail storms in the recent past (2 years ago). I think 8.5 won it last year in July. Guys did catch three 3+ smallies out there this time, which is nice. We are somewhat spoiled with Sag and Canyon so close, but if I lived in Payson/Star Valley/Forest Lakes/Heber, I'd learn Willow Springs and spend a lot of time there.

Im with you man, wont see me back there. Seems like there are 2 places that hold fish, so if you like casting over each others lines thats the place to go!

PLENTY OF GOOD QUALITY FISH AT WILLOW AND THEY HOLD IN A LOT MORE THAN 2 PLACES AS WELL. TIME ON THE WATER, OR IN THIS CASE, THE LACK THERE OF, TELLS THE TALE. CANT EXPECT BIG SACKS ROLLING UP TO A LAKE YOU HAVE NO TIME INVESTED IN.

+1 - I've got other lakes still to learn before I try and figure that one out.

Did you guys use a weigh bag or a ziplock when you took them to the scale ?
