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

The flights of Northern Waterfowl are coming to the Columbia Basin Daily. Our goose guides are reporting new birds in different fields every day. The duck hunting on Potholes Reservoir has been cold, foggy, and tough. Many waterfowl hunters will soon enjoy an improved duck opportunity on Potholes Reservoir with the weather man reporting that the stagnant air will be gone on Friday (11-21-14).

Pheasant hunters continue to work hard for just a few roosters. Many pheasant enthusiasts have commented on the public hunting areas on the Lind Coulee, Frenchman’s, and Winchester Wasteway’s. One option for fee access pheasant hunting is the Royal Hunt Club (www.royalhuntclub.com)

Bank fishers on the face of O’Sullivan Dam, especially the South Shoreline, are using swim baits for walleye up to 31 inches long. We are just amazed with our fishery improvement this past year. Bank fisherman are been reporting rainbow trout up to 26 inches using Power Bait or Pautzke’s Eggs.
