What section of the river is typically the best for early walleye fishing? Thinking about making a trip this spring and have not been out there yet.

Depends on what section (impoundment) you want to fish. Lewis and Clark, Francis Case, Sharpe, Oahe, etc.

Have fished Pierre spillway below dam and had good luck, and also Akaska area is good also. If you are lucky enough to hit it right you can get in on shore fishing for big gators. The white bass can be a blast and are great fighters. Just take mud line out when cleaning them and they make great eating.

Not really concerned which one, do they all have a decent bite at that time of year?

Late April or Early may would put you on Lake Sharpe for your most consistent bite.

Earier would be Francis Case, and slightly later would be Oahe.

I heard about this fish a week or so ago, and it was Oahe then. I got the email on Friday, and it says the same information. Cheyenne River of Lake Oahe. Where it truly was caught, is anybodies guess.

We are coming to fish the Missouri river and staying in Chamberlain in mid April. Does anyone have any reports or river conditions. Thanks.

Should be good to go by then. 3 ramps open at the dam as of Saturday, and American Creek park ramp looked useable tonight when leaving. The marina ramp is basically clear, but the bay blowed in with ice today with the NW wind.

As far as fishing goes, youll get some good days and some bad days, Today was one of the days when the fish won.

Wondering if anyone has any updates on the situation out there. Headed out in a couple of weeks, watching the weather and dreamin.

Water temp? Ice? And of course any report would be awesome just trying to pass the time.

Is there any word on the water depth at Chamberlain now? A couple of years ago, it was pretty low. I didn't make it last year, but one of my brothers said it had come up significantly last year. With the snowfall they had last winter, I would think that it's climbed some this spring. Any reports?

Have heard some better reports the past couple of days from Francis Case. A group I heard from fished Ft. Thompson area monday & tuesday, and while the #'s were not high the size of the fish were very nice... All 16"-24". While there, they heard rumors of a hotter bite happening on Lake Sharpe... as well as Kiowa flats area.... Will have to say, will post when I get back!
