Lake Oahe Fishing Guide

Lake Oahe, ND Fishing Guide

The meaning of Oahe stands for a foundation or a place to stand on.  If you ask me what Oahe means, it means lots of water, cool scenery, and tons of hungry and willing walleyes!

This system is the holding pen for the Missouri Rivers walleyes during the summer months especially.  All those fish we see every spring and fall up here near Bismarck, are only a small portion of what stack up by the millions in certain stretches of Lake Oahe.

Honestly,  at times it can feel like every walleye in the State of North Dakota is living here.  Crankbaits and bottom bouncers with spinners and slow death are the lures of choice to cover this massive flowing body of water.  Another couple of hidden gems on this portion of the Missouri River are the world-class Crappies and Northern pike!

Once you arrive at Oahe you will see the beauty of this landscape and it is simply breathtaking!  I would love to take bring you out on this spectacular body of water!

North Dakota Fishing Report- September 12th, 2021

It's been a relatively slower week of fishing for me. I did chase musky one day. I chased walleyes on the river south of Bismarck one day and fished Devils Lake one day guiding. So I guess this is going to be a mixed report. I'll start with the Musky day. We never...

Missouri River Fishing Report-May 23rd, 2021

Just when I thought there was little chance at a really big walleye, boom goes the thump on a jig and presto! 33 inch monster Missouri River Walleye. The one thing this last of a string of big post spawn walleyes has taught me, is never count a big fish in the system...
