Walleyes are particular about their surroundings. Their hangouts depend on the season, time of day, water temperature, availability of baitfish, etc.
Oahe Lake walleyes will usually hang at the bottom during daylight and move to the shallows to feed around dawn and dusk.
Similarly, Lake Sharpe walleyes will spend daytime near drop-offs or in holes to escape the sunlight and move to the shallows in the dark hours.
No matter their location, walleyes prefer packed sand, gravel or rocky bottoms and will use weed beds, submerged trees or other structures as cover during the day.
Lake Oahe reaches up to 200 feet deep with thousands of points, large bays and sunken islands to fish.
It is stocked with approximately 250,000 salmon every year at Whitlock Bay--just 45 minutes north of Pierre. The salmon swim deep and require down-riggers to reach 80 to 100 feet underwater.
Early April, end of March is ice out and trophy Northern can be found along the shores of Lake Oahe. Northern pike can definitely give you an adrenalin rush that you won’t get from any other fish.
Lake Oahe also boasts a very healthy population of smallmouth bass. The water level has been raising for the last few years and the newly submerged brush, trees, and rocks creates the perfect environment for smallmouth to thrive.
