Here is the latest fishing report for the Potholes Reservoir by Annie Meseberg at MarDon Resort:
The water level on Potholes Reservoir is dropping daily. This not only creates more overnight camping options in the sand dunes it also makes improved bass and walleye catching.
As our water level lowers channels through-out the 18,000 square acres that comprise the sand dunes become more easily identified.
Serious walleye anglers continue to learn to locate the sandy bottom of primary channels in the dunes. Then troll worm harnesses with crawlers or a slow death system with crawlers on the edge of the mud bottom channels next to primary weed lines where walleye wait to ambush their dinners.
Many bass fishers are enjoying 40 fish catch and release fishing trips along these same channels. The Bass Anglers focus on beaver huts, sub-merged wood or their own secret holes on or near primary channels.
Spinner Baits are producing great bass action along with many types of plastic baits especially Yamamoto Senkos, Plastic Grubs and Lizards. Don’t ignore a great top water bite with Rebel Pop R’s, Buzz Baits and Plastic Floating Frogs especially the Spro Bronze eye Popper Frogs.
Crawdading is in full swing and at the MarDon Resort Tackle Shop we have 3 types of crawdad traps available. These traps are ranging from $15 to $60 in cost so they can fit into any budget.
The MarDon Tackle shop has lots of great items for a last minute fathers day present. Anything from clothing to a large selection of tackle.
