    I made a phone call and from what I am hearing the fishing has been good for those finding fish. A friend of mine was out yesterday and pulled a 3 man limit of fish trolling number 5 shad raps with line weights. They were fishing in 25-30 foot of water at 2mph trolling speed. 3 oz line weights clipped on 15 foot in front of the lure. With anywhere between 75-85 feet of line let out on a counter. Line weights are totally speed dependent so the slower you go the more they will sink. They put on in platte and fished downstream. Brighter cranks colors firetiger, hot tiger, chartruese, worked best. Hope this helps.

    The only info I could get comes from north of there. Sharpe and Oahe are on fire right now. The fish are skinny and the fear of a major bait fish crash is spreading rapidly. Sorry I couldn’t help more.

    Kooty, My dad was fishing at Oahe and Sharpe 2 weeks ago and said the same thing about the skinny walleye. It’s not sounding good. I’m wondering what impact the flooding had on them. The fish at Francis Case and Lewis & Clark look great though.

    In 97, when Oahe hit the record high, the dumping washed a major portion of the bait fish downstream. The GF&P came up with a plan that worked rather well. Increased limits of the smaller aggressive eaters. They survived this once before, hopefully they will again.
