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!

Missouri River Fishing Report-April 26th, 2022

Mid Week Fishing Report-April 20th, 2022

Sorry, I completely forgot to post my mid week fishing report. I had it all written and life must have got in the way and I forgot to hit publish. The fishing has been very little as of late. I'm trying to get out to stay on top of things, but the blizzard slowed me...

Missouri River Fishing Report-April 17th, 2022

So we dug out of this late spring snow here in Bismarck. We got anywhere from 18 to 20 inches of snow. To the north and west, they received a lot more. Now, as I wake up this Easter morning, and look out my window, we are getting yet another shot of snow. Maybe 2 to 4...

Mid Week Fishing Report-April 13th, 2022

Holy moly we got snow, and it's still falling as I write this report! I said it in a few interviews this week, for us this is a short term loss for hopefully a long term gain with the moisture. I would expect our river system to be a tad messed up for about 2 weeks...

Mid Week Fishing Report-April 6th, 2022

If somebody knows how to shut this fan off, can you please get ahold of me with directions. Wow is all I can say this past few days. The tough part for me is I don't see a break from the wind for a few more days yet. In between the wind gusts we are catching some...
