Where to Fish Fort Peck Dredge Cuts

Fort Peck Dredge Cuts Fort Peck Dredge Cuts


Just downstream of Fort Peck Dam and adjacent to the Missouri River sits the Fort Peck Dredge Cuts. These small lakes were built by the Army Corps of Engineers by dredging material from the Missouri River to build what was, at the time the largest earthen filled dam in the world. These deep depressions now act as lakes, where the water warms up in the summer and numerous fish species thrive. The Fort Peck Dredge Cuts offer a variety of fishing opportunities
