Here is the latest fishing report for the Potholes Reservoir by Annie Meseberg at MarDon Resort:

The surface water temp on Potholes Reservoir is between 63 and 70 degrees. We have had reports of 30 to 50 fish days from fishermen this week. Pop R’s and Frogs have been hitting for the top water bite and Senkos and Tube Baits will also work great below the surface fishing.

The walleye catch have been at levels that are the best we have ever seen this time of year. Your best bet to catching these fish would be pulling a slow death hook with spinners and crawlers. Lind Coulee and the Crab Creek have both been producing nicely but anywhere on Potholes Reservoir can produce these tasty fish.

Trout action has been fair fishing off Medicare Beach or fishing between MarDon Resort and The State Park. If you are trolling your best bet will be to use a Rapala number 5 or 7 or a needlefish at trolling 3 to 5 MPH and these fish will be 3 to 6 lbs when you catch them.

The Perch fishing is slow but improving with warmer weather. Goose Island and the rock piles near O’Sullivan Dam have perch.

The MarDon Tackle Shop has a special on Fetha Stix Walleye and Bass Rods. WE are selling these for $150 each. They usually retail for $270 – $325 each. We are offering a price of $100 each if you buy three rods or more.
