Pete Fisher photo - Kelly Ross with a big Largemouth bass caught on the Potholes Reservoir.

The current water level on the Potholes reservoir is 1,044 feet — up one foot from last week. The water temperature on the main reservoir is right about 50 degrees, and in the low to mid 50’s back in the sand dunes.

The walleye fishing has been fair this past week with several limits being caught. It has been difficult fishing due to the windy conditions. The fish are being caught between 20 and 50 feet of water with the 35-40-foot range being the most consistent. Fish are being caught on blade baits, trolling Slow Death rigs with Smile Blades and Butterfly Blade rigs. Fish Lind Coulee, Medicare Beach and the mouth of Crab Creek for the walleye.

Largemouth bass are being caught back in the dunes on swimbaits, swim jigs, punch rigs, jig with a craw trailer, chatter baits and spinnerbaits. Fish in the 4-6 pound range are being caught. Fish up Frenchman’s Wasteway and around Goose Island for Smallmouth.

Trout are being caught in the Seep Lakes on Glitter Mallows, Power Bait, and or worms. The top producing lakes have been Soda, and Upper and Lower Hampton. No reports from the MarDon Dock yet, but it will be picking up soon for trout and crappie as the water temp rises.
