Weekly Fishing Report

  • April 23rd 2018

    This report is from Liebel's Guide Service Happy Spring! We are fast approaching open water, it finally looks like we have turned the corner and temperatures are headed up! In less than a month we will be fishing Lake Sakakawea from the boats! We are very excited about that! Last summer was the best summer we have ever seen on Lake Sakakawea, the fishing was outstanding and this summer looks to be setting up very similar. The ND Game and Fish department reported very good natural reproduction when they did their survey’s last fall, so we should continue to see great walleye numbers! They also mentioned that baitfish is in high abundance so the fish should grow very well. We saw great numbers of 16-23” fish last summer and expect to see more of the same with the possibility of seeing trophy fish increasing as well. Thanks Matt!

    Fishing

    *Indian Hills Resort: Anglers are finding steady walleye success by working deeper water in 25 to 35 feet. There is a definite switch to minnows and it’s important to move around.

    *Van Hook Arm: Walleye success slowed but anglers are still finding fish, just working longer at it. Try 16 to 20 feet throughout the Van Hook Arm and by the river around New Town but it’s also worth a try around Fox Island or 8-Pound Flats.

    *Garrison: Look for somewhat improving walleye success around Garrison, Steinke, and Douglas bays, as well as the guard camp on Lake Sakakawea. Anglers are also finding continued fair success in Parshall Bay.

    *Pick City: Lake Sakakawea is producing improving salmon success from boats. Try 80 to 100 feet using flashers and squids or herring along the face of the dam over to Deadman’s Bay with most fish coming from Government Bay to Deadman’s Bay. There is also some morning salmon success working shallower water longlining with crankbaits. Walleye remain inconsistent but there is a bit of an improving bite. Try spinners and bottom bouncers or vertical jigging in 30 to 35 feet and move around.

    *South shore: Walleye success is becoming a little more inconsistent. Work 25 to 35 feet and move around to graph fish.

    *Missouri River: Garrison Dam’s average daily releases remain at 32.500 cubic feet per second (CFS) with an elevation of Lake Sakakawea at 1,842.64 feet above mean sea level, dropping slightly as the drawdown for winter continues.

    *Little Missouri River, Long X Bridge: The streamflow average is trickling at 7.3 CFS.

    *Yellowstone River, Sidney, Mont.: The Yellowstone’s river stage is 3.76 feet while it is flowing at a rate of 5,540 CFS.

    Fishing

    *Indian Hills Resort: Walleye success slowed recently although anglers are still finding some fish if they continue working areas. Work deeper in 25 to 40 feet.

    *Van Hook Arm: Look for continued fair walleye success, although the bite seems to have slowed slightly. Try Lindy rigs and nightcrawlers or jigging raps throughout much of the Van Hook Arm. We’re also moving to the time of the year when anglers can look for a switch to minnows for bait.

    *Garrison: Anglers are finding inconsistent walleye success on the east end of Lake Sakakawea. Try around the north side of Mallard Island in 20 to 40 feet or Douglas Bay. However, there is improving salmon success along Riverdale Bluffs, face of the dam, and Alcatraz.

    *Pick City: Lake Sakakawea remains inconsistent for walleye on the east end. Try 15 to 32 feet using spinners and nightcrawlers. However, there is some better salmon success. Try 80 feet and deeper down to 100 feet over 100 feet and deeper with white flashers and white squids. The best success is from Government to Deadman’s bays.

    *South shore: Mixed walleye reports are coming in with better success along the north shore in 25 to 35 feet. Try crankbaits. Move around and if you’re not locating fish, try farther west. In general, anglers are working harder for fish but still finding some success.
