Lake Sakakawea is for sure one of the if not the top Walleye lakes in the country right now! The fish that were caught in the this weekends Walleye Wizard get together was absolutely mind blowing.
The water is rising fast on the big lake and two things are happening. The fish are spreading out and some of the bays are really starting to turn on! I am a little nervous for the fish population. The lines at the cleaning stations are incredible and in my honest opinion people are keeping to big of fish. I hope the lake can withstand the pressure. Maybe it is time for North Dakota to maybe reduce the daily limit to 4?
Anyway enough of that and let’s get to the report. The fish are still relatively shallow for the most part. 7 to 15 foot of water seems to be where the bulk of the biters are at the moment. Presentation? Well, whatever you like to do is catching them right now. Cranks, jigs, Lindy Rigs, jugging raps you name it are all producing at the moment. Trust your electronics and fish the marks.
It feel like every day on the water you have a crack at a big girl. Many fish in the 24 to 28 inch range are being caught. Keep what you will eat and throw the rest back for another day.

Mid Week Fishing Report- August 3rd, 2022

Back on Sakakawea this week certainly isn't a let down. This lake has been on fire since the very beginning this year and hasn't let up a bit. The fish are moving around some. You can still find some really nice fish up shallow. Just need to be a tad more patient with...

Mid Week Devils Lake Fishing Report-July 27th, 2022

So I've been up on Devils Lake now for over a week. Lots of different weather, a couple more bug hatches, and a really strong walleye bite. I get asked to compare or I get asked what lake is better? Totally not a fair question to ask. I just tell folks they are both...

Mid Week Lake Sakakawea Fishing Report-July 20th, 2022

If Lake Sakakawea was a movie, I think we could call it Groundhogs Day. Nothing has changed really with the mood of the fish. They are still eating! They are a bit more scattered as far as depth is concerned. Some days it just doesn't matter, but the bulk of the...

        hey Mike, Considering a trip to Sakajewa. Anytime from June 25 to July 3. 2 possibly 3 days. Where do you operate out of? Two of us would fly into ? Your help in suggesting lodging, transportation, car rental? Would we bring our own tackle or? Other fishing besides walleye.
        Anything else you can provide would be helpful. Thanks.
