Walleye on the Move

Walleye are moving down into lower Oahe. The bite excellent from the Cheyenne down to Chantier Creek on both sides. The fish are shallow migrating in 5 to 15 feet due to the bait clouds and high water levels. They range from 14 to 20 inches and are chunky. Get a hold of me for August trips. We have open days available.

Fat as could be. Baitfish in the livewell. Life is good!

Cheyenne keeps coughing up nice walleyes. I guided for Scott and Hutch a group out of Scotts Bluff, Nebraska. We were done with five limits of walleye by 11:00 MST and went in to beat the heat. Actually my Lowrance front fish finder locked up and decided to go in early without going for bass. The walleye were still in eight or nine feet of water. Fat as could be. Bait fish in the live well. Life is good!

Dirty Water. No Problem

Today our 50 walleye bite did not happen. We did get our limits though. Something happened last night and it was all muddy where we caught our fish the other day. We had to go to the other side of the lake where we caught fewer but nice fish back in the bays under the mud. We have openings in July and August. If you are wanting to fish Lake Oahe, the fishing has been excellent with nice healthy walleye this year.

Oahe Walleye in Agency Creek

Lower Oahe is producing some nice fish. Screw the gravel roads. We caught our limit by 11 AM down on the lower end of Lake Oahe in Agency Creek. The fish were caught on bottom bouncers in 8-10 feet of water. Here is a 23 inch female that was released.

Oahe Walleye are on Fire

Bob and Ruth Steever from Gillette, Wyoming and Bob and Joann Hofer from Sioux Falls and I caught these 20 walleye today. Winds were gusting 20 to 35 miles an hour and we fished near the mouth of the Cheyenne River along the steep banks and the walleye were on fire. The fish came out of 3 to 8 feet of water using spinners and crawlers.

Healthy Lake Oahe Walleyes

The walleye on Lake Oahe are looking very healthy this year. This young angler caught his biggest walleye so far. A 25 incher today weighing over 5 pounds. His Grampa followed up with a nice northern pike.
