MARDON — The current water level on the Potholes Reservoir is 1,042.05 feet, coming up 0.2 feet this past week. We are 4.45 feet below full pool. 

The reservoir completely froze over Monday night. There are no reports of any ice fishing and no reports of safe ice either. 

Last week was good for walleye, largemouth and crappie. Fish were in 12-28 feet of water. Jig for the walleye and bass, slip bobber for the crappies.
