Karl's Fishing Report

5/24/2015 12:00:00 AM

Lake Sharpe continues to have a good to great bite going for both Walleyes and Smallmouth.  Fishing in the Pierre area is fair to good and the hot bite is from Joe Creek to Big Bend Dam.  Pitching jigs up shallow in the Pierre area is working good right now.  Current Breaks are holding the fish.  Bouncers are working out on the channel edges but its so much more fun to pitch jigs up shallow.  Pitch jigs up into 1 or 2 foot of water and work them back.  Bouncers / minnows out in 10 to 14 foot.  Further downriver the bite is mainly on the big flats and channel edges.  6 to 9 foot on the flats and 10 to 14 on the edges.  Bouncers / Minnows.  Pulling cranks up shallow for Bass is working too.  4 to 9 foot there and you will pick up a few eyes along the way too.  FUN!!!!

Lake Oahe in the Pierre area contnues to be a tad on the slow side yet.  There are a few Walleyes and Smallmouth being taken but nothing fast or consistant.  I look for that bite to go here in a week or 2.  Still a few Catfish and Northern being taken in the backs of the bays also.  The Cheyenne River is flooding and its muddy 2/3 of the way out towards the mouth of the Cheyenne.  It will be a week or 2 before that clears up.  Maybe more if the rain keeps falling out west.  All Lake Oahe needs is a week or 2 of really nice days and that bite will go hard.  I am looking forward to that.

Thank you all,
