Fishing Update for The Missouri River in South Dakota 
September 14, 2015

As we start to look forward to pheasant season, there’s still time for fishing the Missouri River in Central South Dakota. It’s going to be a warm on this week! Make sure you have plenty of water and sunscreen. Fall fishing hasn’t taken off yet, but there are some nice fish to be caught. Come to the river, relax, and throw a line in! You never know – you might even reel in another record salmon!

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 Oahe

In the Pollock area fishing is good using bottom bouncers with spinners area fishing is good, but you have to spend time. Anglers are using bottom bouncers with spinners and some using crawlers. 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 and you’ll have to spend some time looking for the fish. Best area is the in the Grand River, in 10-15 feet of water. Anglers are fishing in the 35-50 foot depths in the main river. Main bait is bottom bouncers, spinners, and crawlers.

At Akaska they are still catching fish, but the bite has slowed some. Fish that are being caught are in the shallows or around 20-35 feet using jigs and crawlers, with many anglers starting to move back to minnows. You need to keep moving until you find the fish – but they are there!

Stay at the Circle Pines Motel on your way to and from South Dakota's Missouri River!

At Gettysburg fishing has slowed some. A few limits are still coming in but you need to look for the fish. Anglers are catching walleye in around 30-40 feet using bottom bouncers and spinners, crawlers and leeches. The smallmouth bite continues to be good. 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 the best at this time. Oahe has a deeper bite going on for walleye and it’s in the 30-40 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.

Some 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 but 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.*
