Default Fishing report lakes oahe/sharpe pierre sd area for week ending april 2017

I just finished fishing with a father/son duo for day one full limits of walleye and some bass down on Sharpe in the West Bend area. I got lucky here with as nice a couple of guys as you would want and at least for day one the weather was great and so was the bite for eating size fish. The last week has been mostly nasty weather and it sure looks like at least Monday is going to be nasty too. Father Dan Rykhus and son Dave from the Sioux Falls area were both experienced fishermen making my job easier. We pitched jigs and gulp around known spawning areas and also pulled flicker shad plugs in around six fow and caught fish both ways. General speaking the bite is okay on Sharpe from Pierre down and Oahe still going for northern and catfish but not much on the big lake for the walleye that I know of. Water temps still cold around Pierre (40's) and right around 50 degrees at West Bend. Oahe temps are staying in the high 40's main lake but you can find 50 degree stained water in the back of creek's. It is early and weather is the key to successful trips but things should improve as we move into May. Boat traffic was down this week mostly due to some bad weather forecasts but if you are heading this way expect boat traffic to be up with improving spring weather.
