 History of Lake Sakakawea State Park
Both the lake and park are named in honor of Sakakawea, the 16-year-old woman who accompanied the Lewis and Clark Expedition in 1805-1806 on their search for a water route to the Pacific Ocean.
It was at Fort Mandan that winter that Sakakawea gave birth to her first child, Jean Baptiste Charbonneau, or "Pomp." Two months later, on April 7, 1805, the expedition continued its journey west, accompanied by Charbonneau and Sakakawea, who carried her young son on a cradleboard.
Lake Sakakawea was created upon completion of Garrison Dam, one of six main stem dams in the Pick-Sloan Plan for development of the Missouri River Basin.

 'Cross The Wide Missouri
Lake Sakakawea's headwater is generally defined as the area from U.S. Highway 85 downstream to the Lewis and Clark State Park area.
Since high lake levels and high inflows often flood this land, agricultural use or development within the floodplain is often difficult under the best circumstances.
Although the overall ecological value to most fish inhabiting Lake Sakakawea and the Missouri River upstream of the headwaters is not yet well known, its value for paddlefish is beyond doubt.

 MoDNR Missouri River Basins Information   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
According to the Corps’ analytical data, Lake Sakakawea had periods where the cold water habitat was eliminated (Fort Peck and Lake Oahe maintained cold water habitat through this period).
In other words, the cold water fishery in Lake Sakakawea collapses when storage is still in the top 20% or the top 11.4 feet of the carryover multiple use pool.
In a reservoir such as Lake Sakakawea, the Corps needs to decide if it is essential to attempt to maintain water elevations for a non-native cold water fishery to achieve their fish/wildlife project purpose.

 USGS Abstract - Water-Quality Characteristics of Lake Sakakawea
The average annual volume of water that enters the lake is 16.6 million acre-feet, and the average annual volume of the lake is about 18.5 million acre-feet.
Seasonal and annual variability of nutrient concentrations is greatest in the upstream part of the lake, reflecting the variability of nutrients in water entering the lake.
Temporal variability of nutrient concentrations is less in the downstream part of the lake, partly because the lake mixes during spring turnover and during fall turnover.
