Places to fish:

The picture below shows some places along Lake Sakakawea where we can fish out of for the day. Generally we fish out of the New Town Marina or 4 Bears Marina, but the weather and bite can dictate launch locations. Most of these places offer camping spaces if you're interested in staying a couple days. You can check out their websites or contact information under the Links page. As a general rule the walleye fishing starts out better farther west in the New Town area in June and then moves east into July. (Click on the picture for a larger version)

Safety

Lake Sakakawea is a large reservoir and mother nature can make conditions unsafe quickly. Therefore, we have the following safety standards:

  • LIFE JACKETS MUST BE WORN AT ALL TIMES! We have the new auto-inflate life jackets that are small, light, and comfortable. You often forget you are you are wearing them at the end of the day. As Per NDGF & US Coast Guard Regulations this type of life jacket must be worn to count as a legal flotation device.

  • Any lightening in the area will result in the boat going to shore, and waiting for the storm to pass.

  • Sustained winds of 30+ mph will result in ending the trip early.

  • Sustained winds of 20-30mph will require life jackets to be worn at all times

  • Forecasts predicting winds of 25+ mph (night before the trip) will result in cancellation of the day. (Deposit Refunded, No Charge)

  • We reserve the right to end the trip at anytime due to unsafe conditions.
