Fishing Report From Mardon Resort/Potholes Reservoir

On February 27 boat launches are ice free on the southern shores of Potholes
Reservoir.  Boaters are using blade baits and swim jigs to catch quality
cold water walleye limits.  Try jigging deep, 50-60′ around Goose Island.
On Sunday when I returned from the Outdoor show in Wenatchee I drove
directly to my sons’ home to enjoy a fine walleye dinner.  Fresh Cold Water
Walleye are tough to beat for a Sunday dinner.  Perch anglers continue to
produce yellow perch on Swedish Pimples tipped with crawlers, maggots or
perch meat.

Ice fishers continue to pull perch limits in the Lind Coulee arm of Potholes
Reservoir.  Many Seeps Lakes below O’Sullivan Dam are partially ice free
where small creeks spill into them.  Most all ice free areas at this time
are good potential for rainbow trout.  Bass anglers are struggling with very
cold surface water temperatures.

For more information call 509.346.2651 between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. daily.

Levi & Mason Meseberg with Kelly Ross braved the temperatures for a Sunday afternoon fishing trip.  The walleye were biting so well they forgot to get cold!
