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!

Mid Week Fishing Report-May 18th, 2022

Frustrating! Just when things were setting back up and the fishing was getting good. The Knife River to the north decided it needed to remind us why this system is nicknamed the Big Muddy, and muddy is what it is. Makes my job extremely difficult. Clients come to...

Missouri River Fishing Report-May 15th, 2022

Boom goes the dynamite if you are looking for action. Early this spring I was questioning if we had a population of smaller fish. Well, I'm here to tell you we do! Unfortunately, I fear these are kinda old fish finding very little to eat and not growing much. The...

Mid Week Fishing Report-May 11th, 2022

I'm going to use the term funky or weird to describe what's happening on the river right now near or around Bismarck. Certain areas are absolutely void of fish, while others have a lot of fish. Problem is if there are a lot of fish they are in current like I have...
