The salmon are biting on Lake Oahe. It was a late bite this year but the Chinook are now active.
The latest report from the water is that the salmon are hitting at 20-25 feet on stick baits, floating rapala’s, and plugs. Anglers are using long lines and down riggers to go after the salmon. Long-lining with lead core also seems to be working well with husky jerks or deep-diving plugs.
Most of the salmon being taken have been found from the face of Oahe dam north into Corps bay.
As the weather warms, the salmon will move into deeper water. But right now the Chinook bite is in full swing.
