Potholes Reservoir / Mardon Resort Recreation Report

Frigid winter weather has hit Central Washington. With single digits all still waters are frozen in Grant County. Potholes Reservoir has Ice in the sand dunes and part of the Lind Coulee as well. Moses Lake is full of ducks and geese and the refuge on Winchester Wasteway, Frenchman Lake and Royal Lake. Many years the birds head to the Columbia River when the weather turns harsh like this. We will hope for a warming trend but if not we could see the lake freeze over soon.
Please call our store for Ice Fishing updates 509-346-2651. As of today we do not have any news on safe ice but that can change daily with these temperatures. The MarDon Store has Ice Auger’s, Swedish Pimples and Maggots. Make sure and check ice conditions before walking on any new ice.
