The weather forecast was for another sunny day, so I called my friend James Lebow in Moses Lake, and asked if he would like to give Potholes a try. He was willing so we gave it a try on Thursday. I wanted to see if we could catch some walleye with crank baits and we tried the area at the very top end of Medicare Beach. It was here we scored a first—a catfish on a plug! We also landed a nice smallmouth. We weren’t getting any hits on the plugs and really weren’t marking many walleye, so we headed to the other side of the reservoir, where we usually find and catch walleye. Well, that didn’t really pay off either. We only caught one whopper perch. We marveled at the huge flocks of Canada geese and snow geese that were flying overhead or rafting up on Potholes. We contemplated what we wanted to do next, and I called Dave, who checks catches on bottom end of Rufus Woods for the Colville Tribe. He said that there are still mostly small trout being caught, so we will wait a while before we fish from the shore at Brandts Landing.
