Dam Fine Fishing πŸŽ£

The fishing is mighty good at Big Bend Dam on the Missouri River in South Dakota. This is our 3rd stay here and we never fail to see boats lined up and guys happily chatting as they clean their catch of the day. There are about 10 boats and trailers waiting for a spot at the fish cleaning station. I guess everyone came off the water at the same time tonight.

“Big Bend Dam takes its name from the unique bend in the Missouri River seven miles upstream from the dam. At this point in its course, the Missouri makes almost a complete loop, traveling 25 miles before returning to the “neck” where the land is only about one mile wide. Lake Sharpe is named for former South Dakota Governor, Merrill Q. Sharpe, who was instrumental in implementing the construction of the Corps’ dams on the Missouri River.”
