Here is a fishing report from the Potholes Reservoir for our ace kayak angler Brad Hole of Ballard:
“The walleye bite was pretty hot at the Potholes Reservoir in Eastern Washington. Todd and I trailered both kayaks over the pass for two days of fishing. Nearly all of… our fish were caught using a bottom walker and spinner with a worm harness,” Hole reported.
One day one Hole said they kept kept 11 walleye between two of them along with a dozen perch. The walleye were between 16 to 18.5 inches.
On day two they got into larger fish with a couple tipping the trough at 19 and 20 inches. They kept eight fish between the two of them.
“The yellow perch at the Potholes are quite large compared to their friends in Lake Washington,” Hole said. “Some of our perch were 12-13 inches. The bonus fish were the smallmouth bass we got into while fishing walleye. Todd got one on the first day that was 19.5 inches and I caught my all time record today at nearly 21.5 inches and guessing it weighed well over 6 pounds.”
“While camping wasn’t in the cards, we did have a good night’s rest at the cabins at the Potholes State Park. A room sets you back $58/night this time of year. We’ll be back.”
