A fishery with multiple warm-water species of fish, Potholes Reservoir is home to bass, crappie, walleye, perch, bluegill, whitefish and (stocked) rainbow trout. This sprawling, 27,800-acre lake in central WA, 5 miles south of Moses Lake can produce quality fishing one year and just mediocre the next. At an elevation of 1,043 ft above sea level it will occasionally freeze over, providing ice fishing opportunities for walleye, perch and trout.

There is lots of shallow water and access to the shoreline for fishing from the bank or portage of canoes and kayaks.
