Van Hook Guide Service Walleye Fishing Report
Van Hook Boat Ramps and
January 17, 2016  

This is probably the
easiest report to write: There
aren't any and you don't
need any. All the boat docks
are out of the water for the
winter. The lake is frozen
and you can drive down the
ramps for easy ice access.
'Nuff said!
Lake Sakakawea Water Levels
January 17, 2016

    And so, we start another year. The
lake's water level at the moment is great.
The elevation is holding fairly steady at
just a little over 1839 msl. This is down
about 5 feet from the summer high. What
scares me at the moment is simple. The
lake is still going to drop over the next
ten weeks, to somewhere around 1837,
but then we need a recharge of
mountain water. It isn't there!  The
Yellowstone snow pack is currently way
below normal for this date. Come on

    Don't forget, you can keep an eye on
the water levels by checking the corps
web site at

Engineers: Missouri River Basin,

Van Hook Walleye Fishing Report
January 17, 2016

    Happy New Year to all. Hopefully everyone has safely made it to 2016. If you are
an ice fisherman here is some news for you. Walleye are being caught at Van Hook
as well as the White Earth area. That's about all I know since I've been chasing fish
out of a boat where the water isn't frozen
--that would be SOUTH in Missouri! I so look
forward to getting back to Van Hook and fishing with all our great friends and clients.

he coming summer should be fantastic fishing based on what we believe is a
healthy and strong walleye population.  We will be taking reservations by phone or
email as the winter drudges on. If you have a specific date in mind, please get your
reservation in soon. Quite a few dates are already taken. Dependent on the walleye
, we may begin guiding the weekend before Memorial weekend, but no
advance reservations until after Memorial day.

If you see us on the water, come on over and say hi. Most of all, be safe out there!
See you on the water!
