Robert Hanten of the South Dakota Game, Fish and Parks Department says the department will stock catchable-size rainbow trout at Oahe Marina and Downs Marina.

Trout released in Downs Marina migrate out of the marina and spend several weeks in and around the LaFramboise Island causeway fishing piers.

Hanten says the department is hoping that having trout available to shore anglers at LaFramboise causeway, in addition to Oahe Marina, will make trout fishing in the Pierre area more accessible. He says trout range in size from 9 to 11 inches and can provide many hours of fishing enjoyment.
