Central Washington Fish Advisory is building 100 habitat boxes to help Potholes Reservoir to add more deep water sanctuaries during our lowest water level of the year in September and October.
It is a compelling need to allow the amazing walleye action to continue to be enjoyed by recreational anglers. The largemouth and smallmouth bass numbers on Potholes have also exploded.
Many anglers are looking forward to the spring bass bite. Without sanctuary to hold the first- and second-year fish, this amazing fisher action couldn’t continue.
Potholes will crash like other lakes with our level of predatory species. Consequently, we must become proactive and increase habitat boxes each year (as our permit allows up to 620 per year).
That is why we must develop deep water sanctuary for our bait fish, perch, crappie, and bluegill. As we move forward with increased habit boxes Potholes will become a recreational reservoir for families who love to fish for many years to come. Look at www.cwfac.org to learn more about our project.

On Wednesday at our bingo fundraiser one of our favorite MarDon customers came to play bingo. Jeff Dillon recently retired and got hooked up to walleye fishing with another retired gentleman, Mr. Tom Pollock, and they enjoyed walleye fishing and landed about seven walleye on blade baits.
Vernadine Erickson of Potholes won $119 at CWFAC bingo.
My next-door neighbor Tanye Ross, wife of our premier guide Shelby Ross, enjoys a quick-late evening walleye trip. Shelby has for many years guided on Potholes Reservoir, Banks Lake and Lake Roosevelt.
