Grab a combo at Potholes Reservoir with decent waterfowl hunting and fishing

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

For the last several years ice has been as issue for Potholes Reservoir duck hunters by the end of November.

This year we have been lucky to have no ice as of Nov. 28, in the sand dunes. Our area is holding lots of ducks and geese, if you venture outside around dawn or dusk you can listen to all the geese in search of a corn field or some fresh water.

We have been socked in with fog every day for that last week but that typically clears up by lunch time.

Our area is enjoying the best hunting season and, other than the fog, mild weather conditions in years. If you are in need of a current hunting or weather report please give us a call 509-346-2651.

Current Fishing Report for Potholes Reservoir:

We have had reports of Perch being caught in front of the Potholes State Park. Trout and Perch are still being pulled out of the Medicare Beach Area from shore or a boat. Some early signs of some Crab Creek Walleye are being seen but it is still fairly slow for what we typically see this time of year.

Water Level is 1030.01, and full pool is 1046.00.

We have many available dates open for the season, come check it out before the lake freezes over. For more information please visit the Duck Taxi wesbite.
