Angler Input Sought on River Reservoirs Access

Truck putting boat in water
Lakes Oahe and Sharpe are very popular with resident and nonresident anglers. South Dakota Game, Fish and Parks established a workgroup to develop ideas that would improve angler access on these lakes. The League was asked to participate in this workgroup, which met for the first time on April 11.

The workgroup is looking for ways to improve existing access sites or develop access in new locations. Suggestions about boat ramps, docks, cleaning stations, roads, and anything that improves or increases angler access to the reservoirs are requested. Ideas are needed that benefit boat, shore, and/or ice anglers.

If you have suggestions, please contact Paul Lepisto. Members of the workgroup will develop recommendations for further consideration by South Dakota Game, Fish and Parks.
