The current water level on the Potholes reservoir is 1043.13 feet, rising five inches over the past week. The water temperature on the main lake is 38 degrees. The main lake is ice free. The sand dunes are still covered in three inches of soft ice. Lind Coulee is ice free for the most part.

Fishing

Not many anglers fishing this past week, but the mild temperatures forecasted for the next several weeks provide a great opportunity to get out and winter fish in some comfortable weather. Fish the deeper humps off the dunes and the humps just northwest of Goose Island to Crab Creek.

Blade Baits are the top producing bait. Fish the main lake humps in 30-45 feet of water. Fish the face of the dam and between Goose Island and the dam for walleye and smallmouth. Fish swimbaits and Blade Baits in these spots. Fish 20-30 feet of water next to the dam. Now is a great time to drop shot for smallmouth on the face of the dam as well.

Hunting

Duck hunting was good this past week with several limits of mallards taken. Goose hunting in the fields was outstanding too. The season ended Sunday, Jan. 28.
