Standard statewide harvest restrictions for walleye are in effect on Lake Oahe as of Dec. 15, 2013. Anglers will be allowed four walleye per day; however, no more than one may be 20 inches or greater in length.
There is no minimum length limit and walleye kept from Lake Oahe count as part of the statewide possession limit of eight fish.
Anglers looking for additional information on the current status of the Lake Oahe fishery can attend one of four public meetings in January and February.
Fisheries staff will be presenting results from 2013 survey work, answering questions and taking input from anglers on the Lake Oahe fishery. Meetings will be held in Aberdeen, Pierre, Sioux Falls and Rapid City. As meetings are finalized, dates, times and specific locations will be released and advertised accordingly.
