Lake Oahe is the first stop along the northern part of the Missouri River in South Dakota. It stretches for 231 miles from Oahe Dam, near Pierre, all the way north to Bismarck, N.D. The largest of the four Missouri River reservoirs, Lake Oahe is the “big water.” This deep, clear lake – at its maximum depth, Oahe reaches 205 feet, makes for excellent boating and fishing.
