Van Hook Guide Service Walleye Fishing Report
Van Hook Boat Ramps and
March 16,  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
sort of
frozen and you can drive
down the ramps
.  'Nuff said!
Lake Sakakawea Water Levels
March 16, 2016

   Here we are starting another year and
the water level guessing game begins.
The lake level is currently just above
1838 down just a foot in the last two
months. This may sound good but the
small amount of mountain runoff there
will be has already begun. Unfortunately
this year when
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  
U.S. Army Corps of
Engineers: Missouri River Basin,
Water Management Division.

Van Hook Walleye Fishing Report
March 16, 2016

   Here is the scoop. Not many people are fishing on Lake Sakakawea. The walleye
bite was really good all winter with lots of nice fish taken. The good news is there
weren't a huge number of fishermen out there taking huge limits of fish. My crystal ball
tells me we're in for an early walleye bite and a great summer of walleye fishing.
That's about all I know since I'm chasing slab crappie 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.
   The 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
spring flashes by. 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
activity, 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!
