Not much has changed from the mid week fishing report. Sakakawea and Devils for the most part have stayed the same. Aim Walleye and the Last Chance tournaments were both held on Sakakawea and the results tell tell the tale.

Fishing up on Lake Sakakawea remains insane! I keep waiting for a major slow down, but it just hasn’t happened yet. Like I’ve talked about in past reports, the bulk of the walleyes are deep. Not all, but a vast majority are. If you are worried about the deep water walleyes, the river section, like always the fish are shallower.

Pick your poison on how you want to catch them right now. Bouncers, maybe heavier with crawlers are still the number one fish catcher. Crankbaits, jig raps are two and three respectively. Again, it’s however you want to catch them off the structure like sunken humps and points.

Another thing I did was run down south on the river near Bismarck to check things out. The river has increased flows right now coming out of Sakakawea. In my personal opinion, the river hasn’t set up yet. Need flows to tapper off a little and a few spots to set back up. I didn’t see a lot of signs of life yet. Pretty normal for late August. I would expect to start to see some fish showing themselves mid to late September.

I am booking late Fall River trips and early spring river trips near Bismarck right now. I’m also booking a few late fall Sakakawea trips also. Get ahold of me if you are wanting to go!

Ok, if someone has the controls for the fan you can dial it back a bit. I just spent the last 3 days at Devils Lake and now I'm pretty sure 60 plus of those hours were winds over 15 mph and as much as 30. Definitely wears on a guide. Even though the wind blew, the one...

Transition is definitely the word to use right now up here on Lake Sakakawea. If you are to ask 10 boats how things are going on the water up here, you will get all kinds of different answers. Some will say it was good. Some will say it was a little slow, and some...
