Seek out walleye and trout at Potholes Reservoir

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

Walleye action using blade baits and swim jigs IS happening in a big way on Potholes Reservoir.  YoYo jigging or a cast and retrieve technique is producing both walleye and bass.  Last winter ice fishing was hot at the Lind Coulee Arm on Potholes Reservoir.

On Martin Luther King weekend there were over 250 fisherman enjoying catching perch, walleye, bass, burbot and channel catfish through the ice.  Watch the weather and when it gets colder give us a call for current ice conditions.

Bank fishing at Medicare Beach has been producing rainbows to 7 lbs using Pautske eggs and power bait.  Anglers are also reporting nice rainbows from Corral Lake, just south of MarDon.  Corral Lake has triploids to 21” and as we look forward to next spring the lake will produce good action for bank fishers and trollers.

As we enjoy the holiday let us be thankful….Because some Northern waterfowl are migrating to thePotholes Recreation area.

Northerns in groups of 50 or more mallards that react perfectly to duck calling have been enjoyed by recent hunters.  Goose hunting will continue to improve as we finish November.

Check out  www.ducktaxi.com website for duck and goose hunting package discounts.  Click on the 2014-2015 specials to review them.  Book a trip to be remembered or buy a gift certificate for that hard to buy for hunter.  Let’s do something fowl!!

The Royal Hunt Club (Boosters) offer fee access hunting on over 25000 acres of Royal Slope private property for pheasant, duck and goose hunting.  No guides are allowed to operate on or use the Booster land.  The Boosters’ ground holds excellent, but ignored goose hunting opportunities.

The farmers that donate their farmland want these geese hunted or they, in many cases, have to re-seed their fields.  Season passes are available or you can purchase a 3 day pass.  Minors (18 and under) are half-price.  www.royalhuntclub.org or call 509.346.2651, daily 9 a.m.-6 p.m.
