Devils Lake Fishing

Devils Lake is North Dakota's largest natural lake.  Currently the lake is about 122,000 acres and more than 90% undeveloped.  Fishing Devils Lake is outstanding year-round for a number of species including:  Walleye, Jumbo Perch, Northern Pike, and White Bass.  The lake itself is relatively shallow with an excellent forage base that produces large fish fast.   The opportunity exists here to land the trophy of a lifetime.  Northern Pike of 10 plus pounds, 8 pound Walleye, jumbo yellow Perch and knuckle busting White Bass of 3 pounds are not uncommon when fishing Devils Lake.  We believe Devils Lake has established itself as one of the premier fisheries in the country.
