Open water reports are a wrap for 2023. The cold temps are here to stay it looks like and ice will be forming soon. The river usually takes a bit longer so most likely late December for anyting to report on the river. With all the nice the perch we caught this fall I'm looking forward to ice fishing on Lewis and Clark and typically the SD marina will hold some of these fish. If you dare to risk it out on Walkers there will definitely be some nice walleye to target in the deeper water as well. We will keep you posted.
