Nathan LaFrance shows an 11-pound walleye caught in Lind Coulee arm on Potholes Reservoir on a slow death hook and crawler.

Walleye action continues slow as the spawn is finishing. Some anglers are scoring on some unusually large fish this week on Potholes Reservoir. After Easter the walleye action will really pick up! This year has been very odd. We had 61-degree temperatures five weeks ago and that starts the spawn with water temperature over 46 degrees. We have seen walleye caught on crawler harness, shad rap and Berkley Skittle shad and blade baits. With a few walleye limits get ready after Easter to catch some spring walleye dinners.

On good days this past week the Heart Canal and Windmill Lakes are providing nice trout. It makes a great day trip to drive to Windmill Lake and then walk to North Windmill and Virgin Lake.

The WDFW will be conducting a fun fishing day on April 23. Donated prizes may be won by catching a tagged fish in Corral Lake or the general trout opener at Warden Lake. The lakes on the National Wildlife Refuge open on April 1. Hutchinson and Shriner lakes are a good bet for perch, bluegill and largemouth. The Pillar-Widgeon chain holds many small lakes with trout. They are just below Soda Lake. One of the most popular seep lakes has always been the Hampton Lakes. These open on April 1, also.

MarDon Tackle Shop weekly sale: This week rooster tails $2.60.

Donít forget to come out and play bingo with us to support the habitat restoration on Potholes Reservoir. Every Wednesday night, doors open at 6 and bingo starts at 7. Bring friends and family. Itís a fun night. Popcorn and other snacks are available.
