Potholes Reservoir has ample fall fishing and hunting opportunities

Here is the latest Potholes Reservoir fishing report from Mike Meseberg at MarDon Resort:

Potholes Reservoir is rapidly rising allowing much better access for duck hunters and bass and walleye fishers.

Walleye have remained slow but will explode very soon. One fisher reported a 12 pound, 8 ounce walleye caught boat fishing off the face of O’Sullivan Dam.

Medicare Beach has been producing trout up to 4lbs for bank fishers. The Medicare Beach Area is still showing some perch in water 16 feet or deeper.

There are some nice crappie and trout from the Lind Coulee arm of Potholes Reservoir.

New ducks and geese are coming to the Potholes Recreation Area daily. Call MarDon Resort at 509-346-2651 for more information on hunting or fishing. We are open daily from 9a.m. to 6 p.m.

For details, call MarDon Resort at 800-416-2736 or visit the MarDon Resort website.
