FISHING -- With the spotlight this week shining on the lowland trout fishing season that opens Saturday, lakes that are open to fishing year-round are temporarily in the shadows.

MarDon Resort on Potholes Reservoir has a plan to capture some attention to its fine facilities and area fisheries that are already open and producing action.  Here's the scoop:

The Central Washington Fish Advisory Committee has purchased 800 rainbow trout 9"-11" and 256 Triploid Trout 9"-11" from Trout Lodge to be stocked in Corrall Lake before the April 26-27 weekend. 

MarDon Resort will be offering camping specials for a tent or RV site, stay Friday get Saturday 1/2 off.  Must request at time of booking.  You must have a valid fishing license and either the WDFW Car Pass that comes with a seasonal fishing license or a Discover Pass to drive to this lake, which is just across the street from MarDon Resort.

This lake is one of potholes "seep lakes" that opened to the public for fishing on March 1.

Info: (509) 346-2651.
