Hutch's Fishing Packages.

I work with the best resorts on these lakes and will either make lodging recommendations to you or take care of the arrangements for you. You will fish out of a seventy thousand dollar boat fully rigged and pictured.

I can fish up to four people in my boat. If your group is larger, I will retain other experienced guides that I frequently partner with for the same rates. They will have similar equipment and fishing abilities. Make sure to book in advance, when possible, so I can arrange for the best guides and accommodations.

We fish Lake Oahe and Lake Sharpe for walleye, northern, smallmouth, salmon, white bass and catfish. We prefer to fish on Lake Oahe. The size limits are less regulated and over all size of all species is better. Walleye average size should be in the 1 1/2 pound range this year as well as the smallmouth bass. Numbers are good on Lake Oahe. Daily limit is 4 walleye with 8 in possession per angler. Walleye daily limit may include no more than one 20" or longer year-round.

The nice part of fishing the Pierre area is that Lake Sharpe is available when the bite is a little soft on Oahe or there is a big wind. The catches are on an average smaller ( one pound average on walleye) but numbers are good. There are more sheltered areas to keep you out of the wind. Sharpe has a 15 inch slot limit on walleye most of the year.

I furnish lodging and food on all package prices and will help you arrange your lodging if you prefer to do day rates and pay for your own rooms and meals. Lodging can be arranged from first class cabins on the lake to motel rooms. If you tell me your requirements I will make recommendations to help you get the best available to suit your group.


Don't Forget Rain Gear, Your Camera & Coolers To Transport Your Fish & Game!

  • Licenses & initial transportation to Pierre, South Dakota, are not included in package pricing.

  • Alcoholic beverages are not provided.

  • All lodging is based on double occupancy.

  • 6% sales tax not included.

Book In Advance, When Possible, So I Can Arrange For The Best Guides & Accommodations.

"A typical day of fishing starts around 7 a.m. for breakfast. 8 a.m. we hit the water and fish until noon, taking a break for lunch. Continue fishing until around 4 p.m. and then head in to clean fish and have supper.


I have never had set hours, so if you
want to head out earlier or stay on the water longer I will be more than happy to accommodate your request.


Almost 100% of the time in the summer months we are able to catch your limits of walleye and smallmouth bass with other species such as northern pike,
catfish, & salmon available.
