Meet Your Fishing Guide

Mike Peluso

ABOUT MIKE PELUSO Mike Peluso is an infamous North Dakota fishing guide that’s well known throughout the state. Mike prides himself on being consistent, as well as versatile on any body of water he fishes. Mike guides year-round, so you can find him on the water or on the ice. Give Mike a call for your next fishing adventure!

Update! While the Missouri River near Bismarck, ND is finally open we have all sorts of things to talk about. First being the flows out of the Garrison Dam Tailrace. With all the flooding that has been taking place down south the flows remain extremely low while waiting for things to settle down a bit.
With the low flows and all the major tributaries pumping water (mud) into the river things remain extremely dirty. With not a lot of flow to push the mud south and that slows our progress to have fishable waters here in town.
Another obstacle will be moving the ice off the ramps and I will for sure be monitoring this for everyone, and will continue to update things for you as we go here.
With all this said I am still guiding trips out of the tailrace region and things are going well! It’s a different game up there right now but if your patient and keep repositioning yourself you will catch some fish. It’s tough and I like to call it blue collar fishing but so very rewarding when you catch a fish. You earn every bite you get up there and I love that about the tailrace.
So if your looking to get out get ahold of me and let’s book a trip. My guess is most of my trips for at least the next two weeks will be up there but we will hopefully very soon be booking them right here in the Bismarck/Mandan area. To book a trip email me @ mikepelusooutdoors@gmail.com and we can lock a date for you.

Lake Sakakawea Fishibg Report-August 7th, 2022

Being back on Sakakawea has been fun! Honestly for me, I love being able to guide on both of North Dakota's big bodies of water this time of year. It keeps you on your toes and I feel I'm a better guide because of it! No time to get complacent. The fish are moving...

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...

Devils Lake Fishing Report- July 31st, 2022

It's been good! Bug hatches, tons of new food like baby perch and white bass, lots of fresh water shrimp, yet the walleyes on Devils Lake just continue to bite! What's working? Well, it's Devils Lake. Seems like whatever you like to use will work! What's working best?...

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...

Devils Lake Fishing Report-July 24th, 2022

I reluctantly left Lake Sakakawea earlier this week to travel east to Devils Lake. All the Rage (no pun intended) lol has been on how good the fishing has been on both bodies of water. I'm here to tell you Devils Lake is holding its own. Both bodies of water have been...

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...
