Light angler pressure at Potholes region, but walleye and perch action still holding up

Here is a report from MarDon Resort in the Potholes Reservoir of Eastern Washington:

Late October weather has a great feel with daytime highs in the low 60 degree range.

For quite some time walleye and perch fishing off the humps at the face of O’Sullivan Dam area has been producing limits.

Fishers trolling are also having excellent walleye fishing using a spinner and crawler combo, a Rapala Shad Rap, DC-13’s or Baby Hot Lips.  It’s a good  time to gather some walleye dinners for family and friends.

With very little fishing pressure the MarDon Dock continues to produce limits of quality crappie up to 13 inches using mini jigs tipped with a small piece of night crawler or a maggot.
