Mardon Resort / Potholes Reservoir Fishing Report

Now is the time for a good family fishing trip to Potholes Reservoir. People are catching lots of fish also in the Lind Coulee arm of the reservoir. Walleye fisherman continue to catch quality walleye but not in limit numbers. However, many walleye over 25 inches are being reported at the mouth of Crab Creek where it enters Potholes Reservoir. Bass fishers have been surprised by the numbers of over 4 pound smallmouth caught on the face of O’Sullivan Dam, the Lind Coulee arm of Potholes Reservoir, and surprisingly, in Frenchman’s Wasteway and the face of the sand dunes.

 

Gunner LaFrance caught this beautiful 2pound 11 oz crappie fishing with his family on Sunday on Potholes Reservoir.
