Fishing Update for The Missouri River in South Dakota
August 24, 2015

High winds this last week made it a little tough on the water! As we get this report out this morning – it’s beautiful, with hardly a breeze! Get out on the Missouri River in Central South Dakota. It’s a great getaway. Come on out, relax, and try your hand at catching some delicious walleye.  

In case you haven't heard - we have salmon fever in Lake Oahe!! Record Chinook Salmon was caught a couple weeks ago!

REMINDER: Check out the Game, Fish & Parks web site for detailed info on the new regulations designed to prevent movement of invasive species.

Lake OaheDakota River Walleyes

In the Pollock area fishing is good using bottom bouncers with spinners and some using crawlers and leeches. Depth is anywhere from 20-30 feet and fishing has slowed a bit now, but the fall bite looks to be excellent.

Mobridge fishing is still consistent, but has slowed a little. Limits are coming in, but you’ll have to work for them. Best areas seem to be 10-15 miles north of town. Anglers are fishing in the 25-40 foot depths with bottom bouncers, spinners, and crankbaits.

At Akaska they are still catching fish, but the bite has slowed some. Fish that are being caught are in the shallows around 18-25 feet using jigs and minnows, bottom bouncers with crawlers and leeches. You need to keep moving until you find the fish – but they are there!

The Fall Bite is Right Around The Corner!

At Gettysburg fishing has slowed some. Limits are still coming in but you need to look for the fish. Anglers are catching walleye in 35-40 feet using bottom bouncers and spinners, crawlers and leeches. Smallmouth are being caught on jigs and minnows and catfish are being caught using crawlers.

Around Spring Creek / Cow Creek  The bite on Oahe has slowed, with some days better than others. The area from Spring to Cow Creek is working at this time. Oahe has a deeper bite going on for walleye and it’s in the 40-50 range. Ledges are working well. Anglers are using mainly bouncer and live bait rigs. Smallmouth bass are biting and they are a good size! Spinners, green or chartreuse are working here. Salmon are being caught around the intakes at the face of the dam around 80 to 100 feet using flashers, dodgers and spoons. The bite is slow bit who knows – you might hook into another record!! A record salmon was brought in a couple weeks ago! Good size smallmouth are also being caught on the face of Oahe in 20 feet or less..

*Please remember that the fishing conditions on the Missouri River change constantly and this report is simply a guideline – a snapshot in time.*

When the wind blows you need to get into around 10 feet or less along the mud line, and if the wind is calm the depth is 20 to 30 plus feet or more. Anglers are using mainly bouncer and live bait rigs. Smallmouth bass are biting and they are a good size! Spinners, green or chartreuse are working here. Some salmon are being caught around the intakes at the face of the dam around 60-80 feet using flashers, dodgers and spoons.
