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
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
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

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 there.
