Fishermen get stuck at tubes on Causeway at Missouri River

PIERRE, S.D. (DRG News) – Some local fishermen got a taste of how strong the current is at the tubes on the Causeway in Pierre Wednesday morning when their boat got pushed to the tubes and couldn’t get free.

Pierre Volunteer Fire Department chief Ian Paul says the foursome was fishing in the main channel of the Missouri River around 7:45 a.m.

Frequent rains in the past few weeks have the Missouri River flowing strong and fast, so Paul encourages people to use caution when out on the water.
