Lake Oahe Walleye Fishing Report

 4/18/12-  A complete turnaround today on the water.  Cold front from last night pushed the fish deep 32-42, but the bite was incredible.  Jigs and minows, and couldn't keep 2 poles going.  Fish were flat to the bottom and a very slow presentation worked wonderful.   Nice males anywhere from 15-19 inches.  Did go into shallow water once and caught a spawned out female 24 inches in about 6.5 feet of water.  She swallowed the hook and we were forced to keep her.  Cold and rainy tonight as another front has moved in, but weather forecast islooking good from Fri on. 



4/17/2012 - It was a tough day on the water, we caught 3 walleyes and 4 northern pike, a couple small mouth bass in two hours of fishing. Due to the wind we were restricted to fishing the east side of the river. Good weather will bring us some better opportunities, on the water. The shore fishing has been good too.

6/13/11 -  Went north today and had an excellant day of fishing.  Caught and threw back alot of small walleyes, but was able to catch a very nice limit of fish.  Everything we kept was between 16" and 22".  Worms were what we were using but i had reports of leeches doing well also.  Everyone seemed to be catching fish in all the boats around us as well.  It's a pretty light bite but there are alot of fish being caught.


6/15/11 Windy today with alot of small walleyes being caught.  Limits of keeper sized fish are available if you sort through all the smaller fish for your keepers. Strong worm bite up and down the river. Fishing has been pretty good for all those who've ventured out.


6/18/11 -  Fantastic day on the water........Walleye bite is HOT!!!  Full limits with nice slot fish are being caught by most fishermen.  Still alot of little fish being caught and it's good too see we have plenty of those small fish for our future years.  Worms are the best although some fish are still being caught on both minnows and leeches.  Catches from both the north and south of Whitlock's Bay are coming in which is a great sign of just how good the fishing really is.
