Deep freeze in Eastern Washington boosts ice fishing outlook

8262589532_2e9820efb9 (2)Here is the latest ice fishing from MarDon Resort:

With temperatures hovering around zero to minus -10 degrees, ice fishing is back in full swing in the Lind Coulee arm of Potholes Reservoir.

Yellow perch, some walleye, and a few burbot are being reportedly caught by anglers using Swedish Pimple’s tipped with a maggot, night crawler or perch meat.

Some of the ice is greater than 8 inches thick and some is less than 5 inches thick.  Follow the established trails to maintain a safe ice thickness.

Many seep lakes below O’Sullivan Dam have safe ice.

The MarDon Tackle Shop is open Thursday to Monday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. only.

For updates, call 509-346-2651or www.mardonresort.com.
