This is prime time for big largemouth bass in the reservoir's north end sand dunes. Bass to 7-plus pounds are waiting.
Rock piles on the south end of the lake, and rip-rap across the face of the dam, along with most of the Lind Coulee arm, are putting out 50-fish days, Barr said.
Hutchinson and Shiner lakes, below Potholes on the Columbia National Wildlife Refuge, also are putting out top largemouth fishing. Hutchinson produced an 8-pound, 4-ounce trophy recently.
Barr said there's a lot of elbow room on the Potholes canal system -- Soda, Long, and Crescent lakes -- for quality smallmouth to 4 pounds and largemouth to 6 pounds or more.
