New Salmon Species Being Considered For Lake Oahe

April 18, 2014, 6:54 AM

New Salmon Species Being Considered For Lake Oahe

Wildlife officials are considering adding Atlantic salmon to Lake Oahe.

South Dakota Game, Fish and Parks biologist Bob Hanten says that Atlantic salmon have a number of advantages over the Chinook salmon currently in the lake. He says the overall goal is to increase the number of salmon that anglers catch on the Missouri River reservoir in South Dakota and North Dakota.

Flooding in 2011 flushed many salmon through the Oahe Dam and downstream. Hanten says biologists have been working to restore the salmon population in Lake Oahe but have been hampered by low numbers of rainbow smelt, the Chinook's main source of food. He says Atlantic salmon have the ability to switch to other prey.

Biologists will be seeking public input on the plan soon.
