I don’t think I have ever fished Lind Coulee on Potholes Reservoir this early, but the weather has been so nice I just had to get out on the water. My long-time fishing buddies Brian Neilson and James Lebow were willing to go. We launched Brian’s boat at the ramp near the outlet by the dam and ran up Lind Coulee. We saw a couple of boats fishing the area and asked them how they were doing. The first boat had two guys and a little girl in it, and they were jigging. Turns out the girl, who appeared to be eight or nine years old was out-fishing her Dad and his friend. She had three of the four fish they had caught. We all thought that was great. We started trolling a line off the island and stayed in 30 to 40 feet of water. We were trolling Slow Death Hooks with Smile Blades in emerald green or motor oil colors. Brian kept out speed down to point nine. James had the hot rod that day and caught the majority of the walleye. We wound up with six in the live well by 1 o’clock. They ranged in size from 14 to 17 inches
