Default Looking for Best Walleye Destination in US in August

Hello all,

Just as the title states, I am looking for the best walleye destination stateside for late August into the first week of September. We were originally scheduled to go to Canada this year, but there is no way that’s happening. Looking to try and stay in the Midwest, big water is ok as long as it has places to hide from the wind or smaller lakes near it to fish.

Some thoughts from our group were Rainy Lake, Kabetogama, Devils Lake, Green Bay. I welcome any and all suggestions. I’m thinking numbers would be a bigger deal to the group than size.

Thanks all for your help!

I expect that the best results would be on Lake of the Woods.

But from a scenic stand, it is tough to beat Rainy Lake.

I would say Lake Sakakawea would be on my list over Devils Lake.

Is that primarily a trolling bite? If the wind blows doesn’t seem like there are many options to go to on the US side of LOTW

Devils Lake and Lake of the Woods would be top of my list. Not sure where you are leaving from. Chamberlain area of S.D. or Ft. Peck are worth a try.

Default Late August

You will still have a good bite on Rainy. That's my vote.

Sakakawea is going through the "golden years" that people will talk about for quiet a while. I think Devils Lake is past those years. Not saying it can't happen again.

Why travel that far if what you want are numbers? You're 5 hours away from some of the best walleye fishing in the history of Lake Erie right now.
