If you’re looking for a Lake Sakakawea fishing report, I can tell you, the time is now (and should only get better)… We put in at Dakota Waters landing near Beulah, ND and ran FAR west. We fished the Skunk Bay area, and a lot of good walleyes came at 10-15 feet. Variations of live bait have been working best, with some coming on crankbaits as well.
We ventured back east and found fish scattered throughout the mid-section of the lake. We didn’t find the numbers as out west, but the one’s we did find were big (some throwbacks). These fish were a bit more shallow and we caught our best fish doing some hardcore walleye trolling.
Lots of reputable guides on the lake if you don’t want to bring your boat. I’ve been fishing Lake Sakakawea for years and I’m still in awe of it’s beauty. One of the most scenic lakes you’ll find in the upper Midwest.
Tight lines everyone!
