Here is the latest fishing report from Dave Graybill, longtime Eastern Washington outdoor radio host and angler:

There are a number of great fishing opportunities right now in North Central Washington, and I am hoping to try one that I haven’t for several years.

My plan is to give the trout fishing a try off the east shore of Potholes Reservoir, in the area known as Medicare Beach.

This is a popular spot in the winter months as there are some very nice rainbow taken by the shore fishers here.  Trout over 20 inches are no surprise and I have friends that fished Potholes in the early spring that caught some really big rainbow.  They showed me photos of fish that were at least 6 pounds.

Getting to this spot can be tricky, and I would suggest that you stop by Mar Don Resort and get directions.  They probably will have a current report and advice on what to use, too.  If I do get there myself, I will share my experience and let you know if the trip was worthwhile.

Also, I just completed my latest free E-Letter.  It has feature stories on fishing at Lake Roosevelt, late-season steelhead and more.

If you would like to get a copy, just click on the E-Letter button on the Home Page of my web site, and I will send one your way.
