Default deep fish

I was up there for a week in the beginning of July and it was the worst week I've ever fished on Oahe. I marked a lot of bait ball and fish 60+ I think they're deep at least I hope.

I once again this year filled out my survey from the SD game and parks. Once again I suggested in the comments some type of a size limit. I would like to see a 4 fish limit just like they have with 2 fish min of 15 and 2 fish min of 18 or all over 18 with 1 fish over 22. I think this may increase the number of fish that are able to spawn and overall help the numbers. Without the size of fish needed to have a good spawn the numbers will not recover.

Filled mine out as well. I had a few comments based on a regional stamp that could go towards the fisheries located in the area represented. $10 or so per region, Could be used on research, habitat development, stocking, you name it as long as it is to improve fishing opportunities. The places with the most pressure would also receive the most funding. Overall I gave the fishing experience the top rating available, as I have for the last 5yrs or so that I have been receiving them.

I think the flood changed system. Forced them deep for food and also lower numbers. I am with goosechaser on the slot limits but would shut down the 20-28 and have 1 over 28. The walleye turned one for about 2 weeks and then disappeared last summer

This is right on, thousands of 20 to 28 inch fish have been harvested over the last 10 years. This would still give anglers a chance at a trophy.

If I remember correctly, the ice went off last year the first week of March, about a month earlier than usual. Don't know how that factors in but it was slow. And the wind blew about every day last year, it seemed.

Do you have large flocks of Cormorants on that lake?

Some things aren't making sense in Oahe . Would the small eyes (cigar size) go deep after the large herring too. They weren't around either it seems . Also there were suppose to be lots of shad in the system. Do they go deep ? I don't think so. All very worry some !!! Hope the fish are there.
