Van Hook Boat Ramps and Docks
August 17, 2015   

    Boat docks at Van Hook are all in
for the summer. Everything is in great
shape and looking good. The big
winds last Tuesday reeked havoc with
the docks but Justin and crew have
them all back in service.
    Parking in the boat dock area is
great! A big thanks to Justin and crew
for all the hard work  they’ve done
keeping everything in such great
shape. Most of us have no idea how
much work it takes to keep all of our
launch and fish cleaning facilities in
such super condition.
Lake Sakakawea Water Levels
August 17, 2015

    The lake is now relatively stable and
dropping slightly. Over the two weeks or
so the lake has come down about six
inches. The big Montana rains have
come in, we have lots of water, and
everyone should be happy. Would you
believe I heard someone complaining
that the lake was too high and they
couldn't catch fish? Current lake level is
1844.11 from our starting level of 1838.
Don't forget, you can keep an eye on the
water levels by checking the corps web
site at

Van Hook Walleye Fishing Report
August 17, 2015   

   I keep wondering when the bite will just quit. It hasn't yet. Oh, it has
certainly slowed a bunch. There are still lots of small fish around Van Hook as
well as a few really nice fish. Some of these are shown in the gallery page 8.
We are catching most of our nicer fish in 18 to 27 feet of water. They are
primarily on smaller pieces of structure and are still hitting half crawlers on a
lindy bottom bouncer set up. Right place, right time, right depth.
   We're all having a great summer of fishing at Van Hook. It's great to see
and fish with all of our super friends. If you see us on the water,  come on
over and say hi. See you on the water!  
   Remember if you need help out there, and see me, feel free to come over and ask. Most of all be safe out
