Lake Sakakawea Fishing

For a plentiful supply of healthy fish, head to Lake Sakakawea. This 368,000-acre lake has more shoreline than all of the Pacific Coast of California. This vast expanse of water creates a lot of room for different fish species to thrive. While most people come here seeking the trophy-sized walleye, you can also catch smallmouth bass, channel catfish, Chinook salmon, Northern pike and sauger. Those who enjoy fishing from land have 1,300 miles of shoreline to discover. There are also plenty of ledges, humps, and channels for those who enjoy trolling and structure fishing. Lake Sakakawea has more than a dozen boat launch ramps for easy access to the water. There are also several public access areas, campgrounds, and parks where you can launch kayaks and canoes.
