Updated Nonmeandered Waters Information Available Online





PIERRE, S.D. – The South Dakota Department of Game, Fish and Parks (GFP) has posted additional information online for those needing clarification on application of the Open Waters Compromise. The information includes a summary of the law, frequently asked questions and contact information for landowners and sportsmen.

“GFP is working to keep the public informed. We encourage those who are uncertain about where fishing is allowed to check out the website or reach out to our office,” said GFP Secretary Kelly Hepler. “We also continue to work with landowners and have been having one-on-one discussions with them.”

The Open Waters Compromise (HB 1001) information is available at http://gfp.sd.gov/fishing-boating/
