We did have a boat in the Douglas area also and they did good with a limit of walleye from 15 to 20 inches. Most of these fish came on bottom bouncer rigs and night crawlers with a couple coming on a jig and a minnow. He covered a lot of area until he found them but once he did it was pretty fast.
We also had a boat out west in the Van Hook arm area and this is by far the best and most consistent fishing on Lake Sakakawea for us right now. Limits are coming pretty easy and the fish are nice sized in the 18 to 20 inch range mostly. The best water depth seems to be in the 12 to 18 foot range. All fish came on bouncer rigs with crawlers.
I do expect the fishing to get better with each day that passes and the water warms a bit. Lake Sakakawea is an amazing fishery and when it starts picking up, hold on!

The next body of water is Lake Oahe from Beaver Bay to the State Line. The walleye fishing down there is really starting to heat up. Along with a good number of fish there is a good number of nice healthy fish. I caught fish using both crankbaits and lindy rigs with minnows. Most walleyes I caught came in the 12 to 14 foot range and the fish ranged in size from 17 to 19 inches. This walleye bite will only get better in the weeks to come.
Finally we had a couple guides on Lake Sakakawea this past weekend and the walleye fishing is spotty at best. One day will be pretty good and the next is tough. The fish that we are catching are coming on jigs and lindy's with minnows. It seems like the action is better in the afternoon than in the mornings. The thing that keeps a person wanting to go back is the size of the fish. The biggest last week was almost 29 inches with a few in the 21 to 23 inch range, but you really need to work for them. I am curious to see when this lake heats up, there is definitely a good population of big fish in this lake but there is also a good population of baitfish which is making it tough right now. I do believe the bite will pickup though.
We truly are spoiled here in North Dakota with these world class walleye fisheries in so many directions. The hardest decision we have is which one to go to, which is a great problem to have.
