Situated behind the Oahe Dam on the Missouri River, this deep, clear lake and its 2,000+ miles of shoreline are idea for both fishing and boating. Anglers will encounter walleye, perch, smallmouth bass, pike and more. Don’t be surprised if it only takes an afternoon on Oahe for you to hit your daily limit.

For the first time in South Dakota History, a major national bass tournament will be held in the state. Lake Oahe will serve as the sate for an Elite Series event scheduled from June 29 through July 2nd, 2018. A big reason why the lake was selected? The sheer abundance of bass! Come out and watch the pros, then case you lines at any of the area’s tried-and-true fishing spots!
