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 bigger fish in the system seem to be doing just fine. Between herring, smelt, white bass, drum and definitely some of these walleyes we are catching. The big girls have plenty of food. The smaller fish, not so much.

It is my opinion (only an opinion) that we should probably be keeping a lot of these smaller fish. It’s like it’s a competition for these little guys to eat a flickershad or a Pk. You put abutting down in the current with rattles and it’s crazy. We are for sure though, on the way back nine of the big fish run.

I feel we really got cheated out of the prime time big fish run. The snowstorms hit us during what I feel is the best time of the spring. Still finding a random big fish mixed in, but eater size walleyes are abundant. For me I’m mainly pulling cranks. I’m hoping to switch back to jigs here shortly if conditions allow. Still dealing with dirty water and windy conditions.

I still have a couple weeks here on the Missouri River. June 1st I’ll be starting on Devils Lake for a few weeks. So lots of reports from both Devils and Sakakawea will be on the way!

Mid Week Devils Lake Fishing Report-June 8th, 2022

Devils lake is definitely in transition. Some of which is contributed to a late spring so the water temps are still low, some of the transition is a massive bug/food hatch and when you catch a fish, it's fat! So what's working? Well, whatever you want to use honestly....
