Outdoor writer Dave Graybill hooks Potholes Reservoir walleyes

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

I got a chance to fish Potholes Reservoir with Brian Nielson, of BJs Guide Service, and another fishing buddy, James LeBow earlier this week.

I planned on spending a couple of hours on the water with them and then checking on some of the lakes that opened on the first of April.

Well, we hit one of the best walleye bites I have ever experienced and I ended up spending all of my time on Potholes.

We motored out to the area known as Perch Point and joined several other boats that were trolling in the area.  We were into fish almost immediately and it never stopped.

We fished in about 40 feet of water and trolled a variety of lures and landed 33 walleye.  Most were undersized, but we did take home eight keepers.

I will be back down here on April 12th for the Columbia Basin Kids Fishing Derby on April 12th, at Connelly Park on Moses Lake.

You will want to take your kids to this one, so pick up an entry blank and get registered.  There will be lots of fish to catch for the kids and free hot dogs and Pepsi for all that attend.
