Missouri River Report:Lake Oahe:With ice breaking up along shorelines, ice fishing is on hold for the most part. There are a few spots where extremely cautious ice fishing is possible, though for the most part anglers are putting gear up until weather conditions stabilize.Lake Sharp: The main channel is open water down to Ft. George and while the fish are showing up on screens around bridges, and sandbars, they are not responding to normal presentations at present, a very fluid situation that could change quickly depending upon water discharge or barometer change.Lake Francis Case:The channel in Chamberlain area is open. The boat ramp at south end of Big Bend is open though difficult to access because of low water. Anglers have been catching a few walleye below the dam. Ice fishing has ceased at present.
