Potholes Lake Information


Potholes Reservoir (23,000 acres): Expect good fishing for rainbow trout, largemouth and smallmouth bass and walleye in this year-round water. Yellow perch, crappie and bluegill populations have declined in recent years so anglers may find smaller and fewer fish to harvest. The best time for these species is mid-summer through fall. The main reservoir and Lind Coulee arm are also popular for fishing through the ice. Remember the new combined crappie and bluegill daily catch limit of 25 fish. A large private resort, a state park, and several developed public access areas provide all the necessary amenities. Disabled accessibility at Island site and Lind Coulee - Level 3. WCT, lgs. / At Williams Lake site - Level 2. WCT, lgs, steep launch.
