Weekly Fishing Report

  • August 20th 2015

    Here is what is happening in the area this week: The Bite Me tournament was another success. Thanks to all of the participants and congratulations to the winners. Fort Stevenson State Park will be busy Aug. 22 when the park located south of Garrison hosts its annual Regatta and the Beach Party. Sakakawea State Park hosts the annual Salmon Derby.

    Fishing:

    *Indian Hills Resort: Lake Sakakawea’s elevation is 1,843.35 feet above mean sea level. Anglers continue finding fair walleye success. Try a variety of depths ranging from crankbaits in 8 to 10 feet or jigs or spinners in 25 to 30 feet working the inside of the bays. Anglers might also want to try working around Tolly’s Point or as far west as Deepwater Bay.

    *Garrison: Continued good walleye success on the east end of Lake Sakakawea working a variety of depths. Try working throughout the east end or west in Douglas Bay. There is improving salmon success in 45 to 95 feet along the face of the dam or Riverdale Bluffs.

    *Pick City: Lake Sakakawea remains fair to good for walleye in 10 to 25 feet but be sure to also try shallower or deeper. Try 7 Sisters, Steinke Bay, Sportsmen’s Centennial, Mallard Island, or west around Douglas Bay or Pick City working west along the south shore. Walleye are generally found throughout much of the east end. Work 65 to 95 feet around Deadman’s, Pochant, or Government bays with a move to the face of the dam for salmon using flashers and squids or herring. The fish are nice-sized with some salmon weighing more than 10 pounds.

    *South shore: Look for somewhat improving walleye success. Try 8 to 12 feet using nightcrawlers along the north shore, especially Nishu Bay. Be sure to also try Expansion Bay on the south shore.

    *Van Hook Arm: Anglers are finding spotty walleye success in the Van Hook Arm. Try working deeper in 18 to 25 feet using spinners or Lindy rigs. There are fair numbers of small walleye but anglers need to sort through for the keepers.

    Fishing:

    *Indian Hills Resort: Lake Sakakawea’s elevation is 1,843.92 feet above mean sea level. Wind slowed activity for a few days last week but look for slowly improving success. Work west of the resort in 8 to 15 or 20 to 22 feet using crankbaits or live bait presentations with leeches or nightcrawlers. Some nice 3- to 4-poounds walleye are coming from the Deepwater area. The wind cooled bays down so try locating warmer water.

    *Garrison: The east end of Lake Sakakawea remains fair to good for walleye using live bait rigs or spinners with nightcrawlers or spinners. Work main lake points in 18 to 30 feet. Overall, though, there are fewer anglers on the water.

    *Pick City: Lake Sakakawea is fair but inconsistent for walleye on the east end. Move around and try Steinke Bay, off the points in 20 to 30 feet, Alcatraz Island, deTrobriand Bay, or Mallard Island. There seems to be spottier success farther west, though. Try nightcrawlers or slow depth hooks. Salmon are still somewhat slow.

    *South shore: Water remains muddy after last week’s winds. Try working northwest of the resort along the north shore around Indian Hills.

    *Van Hook Arm: Anglers are finding slower walleye success after windy weather muddied water.
