Mardon Resort / Potholes Reservoir Fishing Report.

Walleye fishing has been tough during the summer months. Walleye are now actively feeding in 5 ft. of water to 45 ft., using spinners and worms as well as trolling early morning and late evenings with Shad Rap and Berkley Flicker Shad’s, in twenty feet of water or less. The spinners and worm combined have been working all day especially in deeper water. Anglers have reported Walleye limits with Walleye to 31 inches.
Anglers are finding some good size perch in 20-50 ft. of water. Our bass fishing has been very good with drop shot’s , spinner baits, jigs and on warm nights the Spro Popper Frog has been productive. The Lind Coulee has seen little pressure. Goose Island has had great smallmouth action along with some largemouth.
The lake level will continue to drop until October 26th when the canal will be shutoff. Fishing should continue to improve along with our wonderful Columbia Basin Fall Weather. Warm days and cool nights make the fish bite!
