I just got great news on the walleye fishing at Potholes Reservoir. Shelby Ross, who runs a guide service for walleye and the Duck Taxi hunting service in the fall and winter down there, told me the walleye bite is on at Potholes. He rattled off some reports he has got from friends and family who have fished there recently and have had success. One of the anglers he talked to just got three, but they were all 23 inches. Blade baits are the way to go on Potholes right now, and there are a couple of different spots that are productive. The area about halfway between the State Park and the mouth of Crab Creek is suggested as a prime spot, and the humps at the east end of Medicare Beach is the other. Shelby also mentioned that last year there were a lot of 10- to 11-inch walleye released, these fish will be keeper size this season. This is really good news for fans of walleye fishing. I could speculate that we could see a similar uptick in the action on Banks Lake this year. These two reservoirs, and Moses Lake for that matter, seem to follow the same patterns.
