The current water level on the Potholes reservoir is 1043.67 feet, slightly up from last week. The water temperature on the main lake is in the upper 30’s. The reservoir and Seep Lakes are ice free. The forecast for warmer weather did not materialize — so it looks like winter weather is hanging on for the next several weeks.
No reports this week on walleye. Anglers continue to do well on trout back in the Seep Lakes and on the reservoir itself. The top Seep Lakes this past week have been the Upper Goose, Long and Janet. Anglers are using Power Bait, Glitter Marshmallows, and nightcrawlers on the bottom. Trout Magnets have been working on the reservoir.
We have had several thousand Snow Geese show up on the Potholes Reservoir. It is quite a sight to see — they look like a big sheet of white or a white sand island! If you are into bird watching — this is a great opportunity.
