wish I had the funds to go,I would be there in a minute as I have never been there.
I would be looking for them in the shallows close to dark,and suspended during the day.
this time of year it is not unusual to see them chasing bait to the surface early in the morning or late in the evening,it would almost remind you of crappies pushing minnows to the surface.Mr.SeaguarParticipantNovember 15, 2015 at 12:22 pmPost count: 1364
Over on WC Hutch puts out reports weekly and he says that Oahe is doing OK but Sharpe is better.robert1976ParticipantNovember 15, 2015 at 10:50 pmPost count: 410
most people this time of year fish the river at night below the dam. The bite has been really good the last few weeks from what I’ve been hearing.iowa_wildcatParticipantNovember 16, 2015 at 12:42 pmPost count: 192
My favorite place on earth to fish for walleye is below the dam at Fort Thompson. Love to drift downstream using jigs and and crawler and then fast troll back towards the dam pulling crankbaits. Bonus fish have included coho salmon, small and white bass, plus some real nice perch.kenhumpParticipantNovember 17, 2015 at 12:04 amPost count: 12769
The system is full of water. I think they will be dumping for a while yet. Should be lots of fish in the tailwaters. Here is a link for more info.

Yes. If its open and you can stand to be in the boat now is a great time on oahe. I don’t make it much any more but when I lived up there nothing beat chasing eyes while everyone else was chasing birds.sparkieParticipantNovember 19, 2015 at 10:34 pmPost count: 163
fished below the dam, used Don Mentele for a guide, limited the 2 days I was there, not bad for a 40 degree swing in temp, 180 degree switch in the wind that had hurricane force the second day. I should be used to that, seems every trip I take the weather does a total turn around The Spring Creek sign works well for hiding the afternoon refreshments 😆 😆 this was day one, only hour the water was flat, but was the best fishing of the day
