Mardon Resort / Potholes Reservoir Recreation Report.

The current water level is 1041.65 feet on the Potholes Reservoir. The water temperature on the main lake is right hovering around freezing degrees. The main lake is open with minor ice around the edges. The sand dunes are 95% frozen.
Fishing: Not many folks out fishing. The few that are out there are picking up walleye. Fish the deeper humps off the dunes and the humps just Northwest of Goose Island. Blade Baits are the top producing bait. The face of the dam is still producing walleye on swimbaits and Blade Baits. Fish 20-30 feet of water next to the dam.
Hunting: The duck hunting been a bit tough this week. We need a weather change to bring in the birds and get them moving, according to Shelby Ross of Ross Outdoor Adventures. Goose hunting in the fields has been good over the past week.
