Walleye fishing has begun in the Lind Coulee arm of Potholes Reservoir. Surface water temp’s in the upper Lind Coulee are 48 degrees. At the mouth of Frenchman’s Wasteway where it enters Potholes Reservoir the surface temps are 49 degrees. At the Crab Creek Powerline Boat Launch the surface temps are 47 degrees.
