Fishing the Lake Oahe and Missouri River system in South Dakota

More than 1,100 square miles of water and a fishing season that is open all year awaits you in South Dakota. Today’s Missouri River system and Lake Oahe is far from the muddy, winding waterway Lewis and Clark traveled some 200 years ago. Four massive dams, completed in the early 1960s, mitigated the river and created more than 900 square miles of open water and 3,000 miles of shoreline.

Dave Spaid is one of the best and most experienced fishing and hunting guides in this area of South Dakota. He is the originator and inventor of the “Slow Death” fishing technique.  A bait rigging method for catching walleye and other species commonly used by nearly all of the walleye pro’s across the nation.  His knowledge of Lake Oahe and the Missouri River system near Pierre, South Dakota has paid off for his clients over and over again.
