Othello is a city located in Adams County, Washington, that is close to O'Sullivan Dam and the Columbia National Wildlife Refuge.
The Potholes Reservoir, created by the dam, is a popular recreation area for all of Central Washington.
Fishing is the most popular activity in the Columbia National Wildlife Refuge. The fishing program provides some spring and fall trout fishing and a fairly good warm water bass, bluegill, whitefish, and walleye catch depending on the season. Lakes are open to motorized, non-motorized boats, and some are closed to depending on the area and the season.
Othello also is a short drive from Interstate 90, making it a convenient rest stop for east-west travelers.
