Dirty Water. No Problem

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.

Mission Bay Walleye

Mission Bay Walleye

We caught these fish near the mouth of Mission Bay. The fish are sliding deeper, around 10-18 feet. The fish are scattered about, we threw some small ones back and it took us most of the day to get our limit.

 

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.

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.

 

First Lake Oahe Limit

First Lake Oahe Limit

Picked up our first limit of walleye this season on Lake Oahe pitching jigs in 2-6 feet of water back in the Cheyenne River. Water is very dirty and bites were very light. Our largest walleye was 19 inches.

West Bend, Lake Sharpe report for May 14th, 2019

West Bend, Lake Sharpe report for May 14th, 2019

Fabulous weather but the West Bend bite is getting slower. Most of the fish have finished their spawn and must be recovering. Matt and Nancy from Wasilla, Alaska hired me to take them out today. They have a real nice motor home and are traveling through the states. We had a great time visiting and enjoying the weather, but the bite was slow to none compared to last week.
