Fishing Report Lakes Oahe/Sharpe Pierre area for August 23rd to Aug 25 2014

Not a lot has changed since the last report. The river (Lake Sharpe) around Pierre still is muddy from rain/wind from Pierre down to Joe creek making fishing harder. West Bend area is still going strong for smaller walleye and now small mouth bass are biting. Oahe from the Cheyenne river north continues to put out limits of very healthy fat walleye some bass and some northern pike. I guided a real nice couple staying at the Outpost lodge to limits of real nice walleye on Oahe. We caught these fish in around 20 fow on btm bouncer spinner crawler combinations. Kevin and Karen Bowen were favored with a real nice almost fall day and a good bite so they went back to Iowa with some good eating and memory's of a great time. The fish on Oahe are full of bait (small shad etc) and are real healthy looking like the walleye of old days on the lake. After the 1st of Sept when size regs go back on Sharpe it is going to be hard for me not to spent much of my fishing on the big lake.

Fishing Report Lakes Oahe/Sharpe Pierre SD area for August 18th thru August 22nd 2014


Fishing on Sharpe around Pierre has gotten tougher many days. West Bend is still going with limits common but both places have a lot of smaller fish now and with the 1st of Sept approaching (limit size back to 15 inches on walleye) it will be harder to come in with good catches until the fall bite gets going. Oahe right now probably is a better choice especially after the 1st as size restrictions do not apply on the smaller fish. I along with around 27 other guides have been guiding the CVA group for the Outpost Lodge for two groups of around 75 people. Many guide's fished on Oahe and many on Sharpe. I spent one day at West Bend and two days on the river around Pierre and managed to get limits every day but it was much easier at West Bend. In between the two groups I guided Don Kaelber and Mary Ann from Rapid City to limits of fish on Sharpe but all three days I spent around Pierre were harder fishing. I have been catching the fish on Sharpe on either Bouncer /Gulp or spinner/crawler rigs in around 10 fow. On Oahe most of the guides were getting fish around 17 to 30 fow however there were some bigger weights coming in on lead core line/plug fishing. All in all I think the CVA group are having a great time and it is always good to see them here every year. This company makes a lot of guides, employee's, and customers happy every year including Les Wolfe the owner of the Outpost Lodge. Thank you Central Valley Ag. for the trips.
