Looking for any reports regarding ice cover on Lake Francis, Lake Oahe, Lake Sharp and in town Pierre. Thinking of getting the boat out and on the water next week (18th-22nd) any information would be helpful.
Thank you
Roger....

Whats wrong with fishing below the dam?

You can fish from below Oahe all the way down to antelope creek, with the weather getting warm it will open up good soon.  Still good ice on Oahe, it will take some good warm days and some wind to get the ice off.
If you fish by the bridges you may have to dodge an occational chunk of ice.

How about the bays?  Are the bays open enough to fish from shore?  Peoria flats area, spring creek area or cow creek area??

Thank You.

What is the condition of the ice in the Waubay area? Is it safe to walk out yet?
