Pierre, S.D. — Anglers targeting walleye on Lake Sharpe and Lake Francis Case are reminded that the 15-inch minimum length limit went back into effect on Sept. 1.
The daily limit is four walleyes with a 15-inch minimum for length limit, of which one may be greater than 20 inches in length.
Since the boating closures have lifted, anglers have been hitting the water to fish. With changes to the river channel from high releases throughout the reservoir system this summer, boaters should use caution when navigating the waters. Sandbars and submerged hazards have shifted and present boating challenges.
Fishing reports for many waters of the state can be viewed online at http://gfp.sd.gov/agency/hunting-fishing-reports/default.aspx.
Fishing regulations can be viewed in the Fishing Handbook, available from retail license agents, GFP offices and in PDF format on the GFP website. Anglers with questions concerning regulations may contact their local GFP office.
