Van Hook Guide Service Walleye Fishing Report
Van Hook Boat Ramps and Docks
24, 2015   

    Boat docks at Van Hook are all in
for the summer. Everything is in great
shape and looking good.
    Parking in the boat dock area is
! A big thanks to Justin and crew
for all the hard work  they’ve done
getting 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
24, 2015

    So here we are, looking for a stable water level
all summer and bam(!) here comes the rain. The
lake has now come up 5 feet in the last 3 weeks.
The Yellowstone is still pouring water into
Sakakawea at 43,000 cfs or so
. Today the lake
had its smallest rise recently at nearly .2 of an
We didn’t really expect much from mountain
runoff this season, but any water is always
appreciated. Looks like it's going to be a good
year for water.
   Don't forget, you can keep an eye on the water
levels by checking the corps web site at

Water Management Division.
Van Hook Walleye Fishing Report
24, 2015   

   Here come the fish! Here come the fish! Yes, the walleye bite has begun. The bite is
pretty good but the walleye are a little unpredictable. One day they're up shallow (6 ft
and less) and the next day they're 20 ft deep. Eighteen to 23 feet seems to be the most
consistent with lindys and crawlers.
Lots of nice walleye have been taken this last
week. My guide trips have yielded limits of really nice walleye with many over 3 lbs.
   In the river above and below the New Town bridge, Beacon to Shit House has been
good and very consistent
and the area around the bins has also been good, same
patterns as Van Hook.    
   We're all looking forward to another great season of walleye fishing in the Van Hook
Arm of Lake Sakakawea. We hope to see all of our returning friends and customers at
Van Hook so we can all have many more great days of fishing. See you on the water!
