Walleye Limit Raised For Anglers On Lake Oahe

Walleye Limit Raised For Anglers On Lake Oahe

Anglers on Lake Oahe next year will be able to toss twice as many walleyes into their live wells after a change by the South Dakota Game, Fish and Parks Commission.

The limit on the Missouri River reservoir is doubled to eight walleyes a day, four of which can be longer than 15 inches. The possession limit is increased to 24, and anglers will still be only allowed to keep one walleye that is 20 inches or greater.

Biologists say above average walleye reproduction and a reduction of bait fish from the 2011 Missouri River flood has resulted in an abundance of 10-15 inch fish. The change will help reduce the younger fish currently dominating the lake.

Commissioners made the change Thursday during their meeting at Camp Lakodia near Madison.
