Potholes Reservoir / Mardon Resort Recreation Report

This past week bass fishing has been amazing for largemouth back in the sand dunes and smallmouth in the Lind Coulee arm of Potholes Reservoir. Walleye action has been improving each week. The MarDon Dock has been fair. Kids dock fishing with swim baits, storm wild-eye jigs and Yamamoto Hula Grubs have caught some bass as small as 10 inches and up to 6 lbs. We are also seeing a few rainbow trout and some perch as well.

We are excited for our upcoming Spring Walleye Classic the Saturday and Sunday, May 2nd and 3rd. If you are interested in fishing this tournament you can sign up until 7pm on Friday (5/1) night at MarDon Resort. Or just come out and enjoy the weight in’s each day. Fishing begins Saturday Morning with flights taking off at 7am and 7:30am and weigh in at 4pm and 4:30pm. Sunday they take off at 6am and 6:30am and weigh in at 1:30pm and 2pm. We would like to thank our sponsors of the Walleye Tournament, Walleye Dinner and Walleye Raffle. We have a nice raffle Sunday Afternoon after the final weigh in benefitting Central Washington Fish Advisory Committee (cwfac.org). Please visit the website for more information on the non-profit.
