Got out on the open water for the 1st time since Thanksgiving today. Must have been 25 boats below the dam in Yankton. We had very few hits, and nothing made it to the boat. Water temp below dam was 31.3 while farther down river was 34.2. Water levels are VERY LOW. I was able to run from the dam to Riverside with only 1 or 2 tricky areas. I tried to get down to the Jim River but was unsuccessful in finding a route that could get me past 1 particular stretch of river, need more flow to be released. I did find about 3 good catfish spots between Gavins Point and Riverside, including a 46' scour hole with a perfect slack water side. Prolly wont spend much time on this stretch but will certainly put in some hours here.
