Potholes Reservoir / Mardon Resort Fishing Report

Walleye catching continues to amaze all of us at MarDon Resort.  We are witnessing this at our Fish Cleaning Station with daily walleye limits brought in by residents and people vacationing.  Trolling a spinner and a crawler near the mouth of Crab Creek continues to provide quality walleye limits.
Bass fishers are enjoying some explosive top water action.  Our most popular lure has been a Rebel Pop R or a Spro Bronez-eye Popper.  Stop by the MarDon Tackle Shop we have a full selection of lures.
Now is a fine time to introduce a young angler to bass fishing off the face of O’Sullivan Dam.  Many dangerous rocks are between Goose Island and O’Sullivan Dam.  These rock piles hold some quality walleye and bass.  If you chose to bass fish the rock area be careful not to destroy your propeller.   Use a five inch plastic grub on a football lead-head casting along the face of the dam.  My favorite grub is a Yamamoto Double Tail Hula Grub.  Many colors work on the rock piles.
The MarDon Dock has been simply a blast.  Anglers of all ages are catching perch, bluegill, crappie, bass, trout and walleye.  (And we have a Trout Magnet for crappie).  Don’t miss this quality fishing opportunity with the kiddos before school starts.

Families renting our pontoon boats have been anchoring at the mouth of Frenchman’s Wasteway and catching perch, crappie, walleye, bass, bullheads and catfish.  Pictured here are Tyler and Brad of Everett Washington with a nice Walleye caught while out on a pontoon boat with their family.
