Spring walleye tournament happening at Potholes Reservoir this weekend

004Here is a report from Mike Meseberg with MarDon Resort in the Potholes Reservoir of Eastern Washington:

Bass and walleye fishing on potholes reservoir is heating up along with the weather. Water temps are up and fish are starting to spawn. We’ve had numerous reports of nice fish caught and released this week. If you want to see big walleye plan to be at MarDon Resort on May 4-5 to watch the 2013 CWFAC Spring Walleye Classic weigh-ins.

This is a catch and release tourney that is also a fundraiser for our lake habitat project. Walleye fishers come from all over the Pacific Northwest for this tournament. Weigh-in’s are at 4pm on Saturday and 1:30 on Sunday. The raffle and Awards ceremony follow the Sunday weigh-in. We invite you to come and sit in the sun and enjoy an afternoon at the lake.

OR, if bass is what tickles your fancy you won’t want to miss the TBF qualifier. TBF stands for The Bass Federation and TBF is allied with FLW Outdoors, the oldest grass-roots angling organization in America. We are hosting a TBF qualifier which brings fisherman in from Wyoming, Montana, Oregon, Idaho and Washington. Tournament dates are May 8, 9 & 10. The weigh-ins are televised and very impressive. Please contact our office.
