  • Fishing

    Walleye fishing is what we are famous for but you'll find that Lake Sakakawea has much more to offer. Northern Pike will give a real thrill and the Small Mouth Bass have become abundant in the past few years. Catfish, White Bass and
    Fishing out of Indian Hills provides a unique fishing experience. If you fish east, you find yourself working along large bluff areas and sneaking into the back ends of bays. If you fish west, you find yourself with considerably flat contours. What makes the Indian Hills area unique is that you get two specific kinds of lake contours to fish. And you can bet, the fish will either be found on the large flats to the west, or the more rugged points and shelves to the east. And often times during July and August fish will be found in both directions.
