MARDON — The current water level on Potholes Reservoir is 1,043.5 feet — coming up 0.25 feet this past week. We are 3 feet below full pool. Surface temps are in the mid-30s.

The main reservoir has opened up this week. There is still ice back in the sand dunes. All boat launches are free of ice and operational. 

There are a few folks out on the water. Anglers are jigging blade baits and producing nice catches of walleye and trout. Jig in 25-35 feet of water across the face of the sand dunes. Corral Lake is producing nice catches of trout from the bank casting Rooster Tails.

Call the MarDon Resort tackle store for current conditions and fishing information at 509-346-2651.

    Stu caught this nice rainbow trout while fishing one of the open-year-round Seep Lakes this past week.
