Although the walleyes are entering their spawning phase, it is the rainbow trout that are headling the fishing at Potholes Reservoir. Some nice rainbows have fallen for Berkley Powerbait eggs fished off or near the dock at Mardon Resort. Some of the trout taken recently have been true lunkers.
Most of eastern Washington’s lakes open this April 1st and fishing should be good. In the Potholes Reservoir area, 20 of the seep lakes are slated to open to fishing on that date.
As for fishing events at Potholes, according to the folks at Mardon Resort there will be: Washington Bow-Fishing Tournament on April 6th and 7th; the Potholes Open Bass Tournament on April 20th and 21st; and the Spring Walleye Classic on May 4th and 5th.
