I have told people that there are some big rainbow in Potholes Reservoir, and spring is good time to get them. The ice has been off the big reservoir for a while now, so I ran down to give it a try. I set up on what is known as Medicare Beach, and cast my bait on sliding sinker rigs as far out as I could. There is a very gradual drop here, and it isn’t very deep. I waited and waited and wasn’t getting any action. I talked to an angler that was on his way home and he said he just got one bite. He mentioned that the fishing here was very good in October. He sometimes got limits of rainbow and one of them was a 7-pounder. I looked up a photo I took from Medicare Beach in November, when I also got skunked. I missed the good bite by a few weeks I guess. I stopped at Quincy Lake on my way home and just fished for a half hour. There were several fly fishers on the lake, and when one of them started rowing for shore, saying he hadn’t had a bite in two hours, I left, too.
