The current water level on the Potholes reservoir is 1,043.92 feet, slightly down from last week. The water temperature is in the low 40s on the main Reservoir and approaching 50 degrees back in the sand dunes. The gates have been opened and the Potholes Canal is flowing — filling Soda Lake. This water flow will draw fish to the mouth of the canal where it enters the lake.
We have had a few reports walleye being caught this past week on ½ oz. Blade Baits in 50-55 feet of water. The Largemouth bass fishing is picking up on the Reservoir. Reports of several fish in the 5-6 pound range have come in. Fish the sand dunes with a punch rig or a jig with a craw trailer. Trout are being caught in the Seep Lakes on Glitter Mallows, Power Bait, and or worms. Not much happening off the MarDon Dock yet — but it will be picking up soon for trout and crappie as the water temp rises.
We are still running our Spring Break Special March 23 thru April 15. Stay three nights and pay for only two.
