2015 season is fast approaching and so once again I will update this
section. I would like to thank all my new customers and my repeat
customers for their business in 2014.
caught a lot of fish (pictured on the fishing reports/pictures
tab)and had a lot of great times. Once again my guide service put
together at least a 98% limit success ratio for the year and if you
scroll thru the years above you will notice a lot of the same faces
every year. This speaks to the fact that my guide service runs on
repeat business. I think this speaks a huge amount about the super
fishery we have here on Oahe and Sharpe around the Pierre area.
Last year Sharpe remained steady with limits of nice 17 inch average
size walleye the norm and excellent smallmouth fishing. Oahe was
tougher for bigger fish with a lot of the limits coming in with 14
to 15 inch walleye and smaller numbers of over 20 inch fish in the
Smallmouth /northern fishing was very good. The best limits that we
put together in 2014 were in the fall with some real nice 18 to 19
inch fish limits coming in. With that in mind and the fact that we
have a great food base back (rainbow smelt numbers up 40 %) and
normal pool water I think being optimistic about the fishery
producing very good fishing in 2015 is in line.
think Sharpe should remain stable with nice 15 inch to 17 inch
average size walleye and maybe even putting out another state record
smallmouth this year. Oahe could do a record smallmouth also and I
look for an over all improvement in bags sizes hopefully to a 17 to
19 inch size walleye limit being not uncommon.
There are also a lot of nice northern in Oahe now (years of high
water/ bait coming back) so these along with the smallmouth will
continue to be bonus fish in most anglers catches. Both lake are
full of channel cats and white bass with no limit on catfish on Oahe
so they will still provide great fishing for those interested.
will continue to do the fishing reports/ pictures tab again this
year in the hope that it will aid you in seeing the size of the
fish, the areas we are fishing, the depths we are fishing and the
baits we are using. This information can aide you both in planning
trips hopefully and saving a little time getting to right
you are looking for a guide service I would love to have your
business or if you need information about the fishing hopefully the
fishing reports page will help you out. I will update hunting info
later in the summer and try and put projected pheasant numbers out
but it should be another great year again in 15. The Pierre area and
Lake Oahe /Sharpe continue to be the closest destination for
Nebraska, Kansas, Iowa Wyoming anglers to experience the level of
fishing we offer so we hope to see you around in 2015.
Bring a skillet because we have a lot of fish that need cooking.
