Walleye are still concentrated in the western basin of Lake Pend Oreille, especially in the northern portions of Oden Bay and near the Sandpoint bridges. More walleye have moved into the Pend Oreille River, with concentrations near Laclede and Thama.
The table below provides locations of walleye, northern pike and lake trout located throughout Lake Pend Oreille. We've recently started implanting northern pike with transmitters, and we intend to tag more in the future. To view the latest map of walleye locations click here.
Biologists track acoustic-tagged walleye to learn more about walleye movements and to help anglers effectively target walleye and participate in the Lake Pend Oreille angler incentive program.
