Mardon Resort / Potholes Reservoir Fishing Report

Returning to normal July/August temperatures has made fishing all day a very enjoyable experience. But, the water sports enthusiasts love boarding and water skiing in those high 90 and 100 degree days. Bass and walleye fishing continue to provide simply amazing action. Catch and release bass anglers are using, spinnerbaits, crank baits, drop shot techniques, senkos, tube baits and 5” grubs on a football lead-head. Many bass fishers are accidentally catching an occasional walleye. The best areas to Jig for walleye are the mouth of Frenchman’s Waste way, near Goose Island, and by the orange buoys at the outlet to the Potholes Canal. Fisher’s trolling continues to bag limits or near limits using a spinner and crawler combination trolling at a speed of 1.25 MPH. Crank baits, such as Rapala Shad Raps, Berkley Flicker Shad and many other types of diving plugs, have been working well for walleye in the sand dunes.
