Lake Sakakawea - Thursday, March 13, 2014

fish adjacent to the main channel and be somewhat near where they are going to spawn.  I have moved back onto the lake recently cuz the river has been rising the last 2 weeks.  I have found the fish both shallow and deep depending on weather conditions.  I pulled 2 9lbrs out of 5' and 24" on the same day(released both).  

Peace, good luck

The fish are in the areas next to the "main" channels.  I have been finding um on the areas close to where you would find the fish in a month(spawning areas) I have had to move back onto the lake as the river has been rising the last 2 weeks.  I will not give you my locations, but have given you the clues to where ya need to start your pursuit.  I have had good bites both shallow and deep, just make sure you are near the "channel's" 

Peace, & good hunt'n

 Hey not a fishing report sorry.
I have never fished this lake before but I am just wondering how is ice fishing normally on this lake? And if i decide to give it a try in the next couple years where are some good parts to try? I live by devils lake and fish it all the time. So an area to try on the east side of the lake would be better than the west for me. What are the main species of fish to expect to catch? thanks
