Weekly Fishing Report

  • June 10th 2016

    Here is what is happening in the area this week: Fishing tournaments abound this weekend. For example, Van Hook Arm and Hazen Bay host tournaments June 10 and 11. On the east end, Sportsmen’s Centennial Park also is the home base for a tournament. This weekend is also an opportunity to raise cancer awareness by attending the 17th Annual Coal Country Relay for Life on June 10 in Beulah or the McLean County Relay for Life at Garrison High School. The Sakakawea Medical Center Foundation annual Four-Person Scramble begins at 8 a.m. at the Hazen Golf Course on June 13.


    *Indian Hills Resort: Anglers are finding some nice-sized walleye working along the south shore. Try nightcrawlers with Lindy rigs around 10 feet.

    *Van Hook Arm: Mixed reports are coming from the Van Hook Arm with some anglers finding an improving walleye bite. Try 15 feet mixing up bait, although leeches seem to be producing best and try the northwest corner of the Van Hook Arm or the flats.

    *Garrison: Look for continued fair walleye success on Lake Sakakawea with most anglers working Douglas Bay. There is some success throughout much of the east end, however. Try 5 to 15 feet with a variety of presentations.

    *Pick City: The east end of Lake Sakakawea remains fair to good for walleye, especially Douglas Bay. Most success is scattered along the north shore with an occasional fish along the south shore. There is OK pike success.

    *South shore: Walleye activity is picking up. Anglers might want to try the south shore’s Little Soldier Bay or Nishu Bay on the north side using Lindy rigs or jigs with minnows in 5 to 12 feet.

               North Dakota Rivers Report, featuring Lake Sakakawea’s two major tributaries:

    *Missouri River: Garrison Dam’s average daily releases remain at 21.000 cubic feet per second (CFS) with its elevation at 1,840.33 feet above mean sea level.

    *Yellowstone River, Sidney, Mont. The Yellowstone’s river stage is 9.07 feet while it is flowing at a rate of 24,500 CFS.
