Van Hook Guide Service Walleye Fishing Report
Van Hook Boat Ramps and Docks
February 23, 2015   

    
Boat docks at Van Hook are out for
the winter.  Don
't expect them in until
close to mid May or at least after the ice
goes out. Everything is iced in and will
be for a couple more months.

    
A big thanks in advance to Justin and
Dawn for all the hard work they are about
to do. Most of us have no idea how much
work it
takes to get the park ready for
spring.
Lake Sakakawea Water Levels
February 23, 2015    

    
Well, this being the first report of 2015 and we have a
pretty good outlook. Today the lake level is at 1838.99, still
two feet above normal pool. Being winter, the corps is
slowly drawing the lake down but downstream ice really
puts a damper on very much flow.

   
 The corps is releasing 23,000 cfs but there is still
19,000 coming in, mostly from Yellowstone. From what I
see in the current snow water equivalent graphs
, the
Yellowstone Basin is holding right around 110 percent of
normal snow water level. That provides us with a lot of
optimism for our summer water levels.

   
 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  
U.S. Army Corps of
Engineers: Missouri River Basin, Water Management
Division.
Van Hook Walleye Fishing Report
February 23, 2015   

    
I think this is the toughest part of the year. It's cold outside, the ice is
thick, and often it
's tough to get a walleye bite even if you can brave the
weather. But, spring is coming, honest!  I can hardly wait for the fun to
begin again
in May.
    
There have been some really nice walleye taken through the ice this
winter and I expect the trend to continue in the spring. 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
this  summer.
