Except for a few wind days the weather has cooperated and so has the bite. I guided another of my repeat customer groups the Jay Wright, Sam, and Scott guys from around Genoa Ne to full possession limits of walleye some bass and catfish to take home along with big fish meals every night. The bite is very good all up and down the river. The overall avg size of walleye on Oahe is great with most bags coming in with some over 20 inch fish along with some 18 to 19 inchers. I am still fishing less than 6 fow but many boats are deeper catching walleye on Bouncer/Nightcrawler or leeches minnow rigs all the way out to 25 fow. Pulling plugs is also good. Sharpe is also good with limits for most boats. I favor Oahe however because the overall fish size is better along with bigger water that holds increased boat traffic. There are more and more anglers/boats out there every year enjoying the lakes so be prepared for busy boat ramps but with near record water high elevations there is plenty of room to fish. A full summer bite is going on from Chamberlain to Mobridge so take your pick and come on up and catch lots of fish.
