Unique Project Shedding More Light On Oahe Walleye

March 4, 2014, 7:35 AM

PIERRE, SD -

Wildlife officials are learning more about the walleye in Lake Oahe through a unique tagging program that was launched last year.

South Dakota's Game, Fish and Parks Department and North Dakota's Game and Fish Department are cooperating on a project to tag about 40,000 walleye over four years. It started last year with about 9,200 tagged fish. Anglers caught about 2,000 of them.

So far, officials have been able to calculate that anglers are harvesting about one-fourth of the walleye in the Missouri River reservoir in the Dakotas. They've also learned that a lot more fish seem to travel from North Dakota to South Dakota than the other way around.

Officials hope to learn a lot more over time, including how long Oahe walleye live.
