Fisheries biologist Robert Hanten says officials want to evaluate if a fall stock of larger trout will remain in the tailrace area and be available for anglers to catch throughout the year.

The Oahe tailrace is about 5 miles northwest of Pierre, below the Oahe Dam powerhouse on the Missouri River.
