I had a great morning on Potholes Reservoir yesterday. I jumped on Brian Nielson’s boat with James Lebow, and once again the three of us really enjoyed fishing together. Brian has been guiding on Potholes and having good success and I was pleased that he found time to get the three of us out together. We trolled bottom bouncers in the rolling dunes below the mouth of Crab Creek on the Frenchman Wasteway side of Potholes. The depths here range from 12 feet to 35 feet as you pass through these dunes. We would mark walleye on the slopes and between walleye, bluegill, perch, and the occasional catfish we were busy all morning. Brian said he loaded his bait box with 50 nightcrawlers and by noon we were resorting to artificial worms. We did manage to land 11 walleye, losing two right at the boat, and reeling in lots of crawlers that had been bitten and torn almost off the hook. The walleye were not big. They probably averaged 14 to 15 inches and we had one that was about 18 inches. We agreed that these fish represent a good crop for the next season on Potholes Reservoir.
