Going to spend a week in August in Pierre and plan on a few days fishing salmon. Anyone have reports to share?

Yeah I was there third week of Aug last year and did OK. I'm going again the week of the 21st and give em a try again. Salmon fishing is a nice break for us and my smoker is ready!

I can't believe I'm admitting it but I'll have the laptop along so I can check reports and maybe even post at the hotel in the evening! Man, my dad gives me hell for bringing the cell phone with me. He reminds me "we used to go fishing just to get away from the phone" "Now you bring it in the boat with you" I've got no defense!

I've heard it's been decent. Personally not been out but fish are being caught. I'd head to Carl's in Ft Pierre or hit a resort near Pierre on Oahe for more details. Good luck!

best salmon action was in june without a doubt. it has been slowing down since then. people are still bringing in a few. 45-90 fow. so spread out because the salmon have been feeding on shad and smelt.

There are plenty salmon being csught this week, there have been as many as 8-10 boats out daily and I've seen most of them being successfull. I wonder if everyone has read the 2006 proclimation concerning bag limits? Daily and posession for salmon is five.

I spoke to gfp in Ft Pierre this am. 5/10 is correct. I suggested they change the downloadable version on their web site to which they agreed. Folks need to know the correct info and I think more effort is required to get the word out when a mistake as glaring as this one is made.

What will the salmon run at Whitlox be like this year? We tryed a few years ago casting spoons from shore with no luck. We were also told to be there very early in the morning.

Story in the RC Journal on Tues stated much luck being enjoyed by shore fishermen at witlocks lately. Had a picture of a young lad proud angler displaying a nice catch. The article stated that the salmon were still actively feeding.
