Lake Sakakawea – Lake Oahe- Missouri River Fishing Guide in ND
Lake Sakakawea & Lake Oahe Fishing Reports
Lake Oahe is on fire right now in terms of numbers when it comes to walleyes. We spent the past couple days trolling the North Dakota side of Lake Oahe and caught tons of fish. The bite is hot and heavy and there isn't a better time to call and get on the water...
The fishing is getting good and my guiding is ramping up! I just returned from some guiding on the Glacial Lakes of South Dakota and we had some good fishing. It took us time to put it together, but we found some stained shallow water with lots of active walleyes...
Fall is in the air, waterfowl is starting to migrate, and its a beautiful time of year! I'm happy to report that Fin-Hunters Guide Service has been busy and the fishing in ND has been very good! Recent rains have had an effect on things and some big fish have graced...

Lake Sakakawea Fishing Guide – Lake Oahe Fishing Guide
Likely the hottest walleye fishery in the Midwest is Lake Sakakawea. Lake Sakakawea has become a top destination when it comes to quality fisheries. Its named for the famed American Indian girl who guided Lewis and Clark Expedition through the region, and has drawn national attention in the past few years for its walleye resurgence. Lake Sakakawea, with more than 1,600 miles of shoreline and endless secluded bays, still retains much of the raw and untamed beauty that Lewis and Clark chronicled in their journals as they explored the area in the early 1800s. In addition to its diversity when it comes to game species sought after by anglers, the area surrounding the lake also captivates sightseers with a combination of wide-open and uncluttered horizons mixed in with rugged and rocky shorelines. As part of the Missouri River System that winds through America’s heartland, the headwaters begin in the northwest part of the state near the North Dakota/Montana border. It is there that Lake Sakakawea begins at the confluence of the Yellowstone and Missouri rivers. From there the largest Missouri River Reservoir heads east then south towards Garrison, ND and the famous Garrison Dam. While walleye fishing commands the most attention from anglers on Sakakawea, it’s only the tip of the proverbial iceberg when it comes to species found in her waters. Trophy class Northern Pike, Sauger, Salmon, Smallmouth Bass, Paddlefish, and Sturgeon just to name a few. Good water flow and large baitfish (Smelt) populations make Lake Sakakawea the great fishery it is. Fat and sassy walleyes fight hard and grow to impressive proportions. July through October is prime time for Lake Sakakawea. Its slow to warm in spring, so it takes some time for the fish to become consistently active. Fin-Hunters Guide Service takes many clients out of the Garrison ND area with accommodations at the Garrison Motel or the North Shore Inn and Suites of Garrison.
