  1. fyi if your going to be doing some fishing in SD: http://gfp.sd.gov/fishing-boating/courtruling.aspx I am not sure how I feel about this yet, but what I am most concerned about is losing access to bodies of water where gfp stocked fish. From article "GFP cannot facilitate access to these waters until the State Legislature acts." I would suggest many of us to contact our state legislatures and voice our opinions
  2. 2015 Pheasant Reports

    2015 Resident opener is this Saturday through Monday. Supposed to be really warm out this weekend so I will probably be limiting my hunts to later parts of the day not to risk working the dogs to hard in the heat. As for harvest, I have seen lots of beans going out the last few days and this morning as I drove in to work I saw my first corn field being harvested. I know the central portions of the state saw some moisture recently so it may take those areas a littler longer for the crops to dry out. I would expect the warming trend to help with that. If its going to be warm and hot I will probably not be hitting it to hard until the temps cool off. I like hunting late season better anyway. I have some time off of work scheduled around halloween so hopefully be getting a good fix of hunting then Good luck to those that make it out and be sure to report back here with reports and pictures of your hunts. Rooster!
  3. PIERRE, SD - The walleye population in Lake Oahe is still struggling to rebound from the 2011 Missouri River flood, but one bright spot is that the fish that are in the lake are getting bigger. South Dakota Game, Fish and Parks senior fisheries biologist Mark Fincel said walleye and other game fish in Oahe are getting a boost from large numbers of baitfish such as young white bass, perch and shiners. The average fish caught by anglers this year on the Dakotas reservoir was about 16 inches, an inch bigger than last year's average. Another positive sign for the fishery is that numbers of smelt and lake herring baitfish have been slowly increasing since 2013. Those baitfish provide the fatty food that sustain older, larger walleyes.
  4. http://gfp.sd.gov/news/news/august/27.aspx good news I guess, about what I expected with the mild winter and good spring. Glad to see an improvement despite numbers still below the 10yr avg. Wont be long now until season starts. This is my favorite time of the year. Good luck to everyone this fall! ROOSTER!
