Games, Fish & Park Commission provide update on Lake Oahe

PIERRE, S.D.(KCCR)- The Game, Fish and Parks Commission was updated Thursday about the water level in Lake Oahe.  North Central Park Regional Supervisor Pat Buscher says he attended a recent public meeting on the Missouri River by the Corp of Engineers in Fort Pierre.

Buscher says Oahe should rise slightly as the Corps balances the main stem system.

Buscher says they only have a handful of boat ramps out-of-service due to the low levels.

Buscher says they are at the transition period between the lower end of primary ramps and the top end of many low-water ramps.
