An Angler’s Dream Come True – Fishing at Potholes Reservoir with Reel Time Fishing

Potholes Reservoir is an oasis for anglers – a secret haven in the desert where fishing opportunities ebb and flow with the irrigation season. Spring brings high waters that bring fish between flooded willows, trees, and even miles back into dunes!

But don’t worry, when water levels dissipate bass move to shallow structures like rock piles or stumps at main lake structure. A real bonus: hundreds of beaver huts provide year-round hideaways ideal for snagging dinner!

If you want to catch the biggest largemouth bass, timing is key. The best time to catch these elusive fish is from spring to early summer when they’re spawning, and in the fall when they’re feeding before winter. During these times, the bass are more active, and the water temperatures are optimal for fishing. So, plan your trip accordingly and prepare to have some exciting catches.

Great time fishing with knowledgeable guide. Hot lunch was nice but while parked on the beach seen two fish caught. Maybe a sandwich while fishing instead.

Fished 2 days with Captain Pepe and his crew in Cabo. These guys were fantastic. Had us in Fish from the start. 13 Marlin and 5 big Mahi in two days. If you are going to fish in Cabo, do yourself a favor and book with Reel Time.

Our guide Jack worked hard to ensure we had the best opportunities to catch Salmon and Steelhead. His knowledge of all aspects of fishing made this a great opportunity for us and he gave us many opportunities to catch and land fish. We landed 5 steelhead and had several other opportunities, but were unable to connect on all of them. Overall, it was a great trip and a great day to be fishing with an expert in his field.
