Lake Sakakawea Fishing Guide

Lake Sakakawea is 178 miles long with an average 6 miles wide of big walleye producing potential.  I grew up fishing this massive reservoir and my love for it has only gotten stronger.  With over 30 years of experience on this lake it still remains exciting and mysterious.  The Big Lake was famed in the early 80’s as a whopper producer with many fish over 8 pounds caught.  It’s on its way back to the “Good old Days” and with new rules in place with the Army Corp of Engineers, the lake will remain in good shape for many years to come.  This massive body of water is loaded with smelt, in walleye terms, Prime Rib!  These walleyes are feasting heavy on this forage, and they are growing fast.  The best part of fishing Lake Sakakawea is all the different ways you can try and catch them.  Pitching jigs shallow is an angler’s favorite for the early portion of the season.  Once the water warms up a little, guys will start chasing these golden beauties with bottom bouncer and slow death or Lindy Rigs.  Another transition happens and deep running crank baits and jig raps become the go to bait!  This body of water goes super strong from ice out until ice up and it also does well in the winter!  Get a hold of me today and book a trip on one of the top walleye producing lakes in the country!

So the million dollar question for the next month is how thick is the ice? To be honest the answer right now for everyone and everywhere, is it is not thick enough! I know I am supposed to be this big tough old hockey player, but no one is tough enough when it comes...

ND Fishing Report-November 2nd, 2019
