We had 3 members and a guest ( Ken Ganancial ) fishing the first tournament of the year on Lake Roosevelt.    It was in the 40's for the 5:20 Saturday blast off with moderate wind conditions on Saturday.  Sunday saw 46 degrees with mild winds for the blast off and around 70 degrees for the 1:00 pm Weigh In.  Water temperatures were 50 -51 in the main lake with the mid to upper 50's in a few coves.  First day leader Brian Walters with 14.52 pounds had a family illness on Sunday and had to leave after only a few hours fishing. Brian fished the Wynhoff Cove area on Saturday.  He reported catching his fish on tubes and deep diving crank baits.   Tom Melowitz fished with Ken Ganancial and amazingly had the identical weight for the two days.  Ken got the nod with a bigger fish than Tom's.  They fished the San Poil on Saturday catching fish on tubes and Swim Baits and moved to Swawilla Basin in the afternoon where Ken did well on Swim Baits.  They fished Swawilla Basin on Sunday where they struggled until they ran to the Spring Canyon area for the last hour.  They both had only three fish with a hour to go but caught several fish in the last hour.  Sunday fishing was extremely difficult.  Another great spring fishing day on Lake Roosevelt!
