29 inch walleye from one of our Lake Oahe fishing guides.
Lake Oahe Fishing Guides – I’ve been fortunate enough to have a very flexible schedule this year so I’ve been cherry picking the best weather days of the week. Saturday was no exception with almost 70 degree temps and very light winds. There’s a lot of guys on the water so we’ve been going out really early, getting to the landing at 6:30 a.m. Some of the community holes are holding a lot of nice fish and the key is to get there first. I’ve been hitting around 4-8 holes every outing and it’s been paying off. Typically all the holes are holding fish, it just depends on how many and what size. We’re starting to see a lot more males as the fish are moving up the river system and we’re doing most of our fishing south of Bismarck.
On to Saturday’s walleye fishing…it was again, excellent. We fished for around 4 hours and boated almost 30 walleyes, a couple pike, and a bonus 6 lb. salmon. We just kept the small to mid sized males to clean and released a lot of females. I was lucky enough to boat a 29″ walleye as well. It was VERY thick and was probably the biggest fish I’ve seen out of my boat so far this year. I did not weigh it, just got it back in the water right away to swim and be caught again.
I will be guiding Tuesday, April 17th and Thursday, April 19th. The rest of the week is open so give me a shout if you want to get in on some of the great walleye fishing action!
