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.
