Governor lifts ban on recreational use of Big Sioux River

Argus Leader | May 5, 2011

Gov. Dennis Daugaard has lifted the recreational use ban on the
Big Sioux River in eastern South Dakota.

Residents had been banned because of high flood waters creating
dangerous conditions.

Even though the ban has been lifted, Department of Game, Fish
and Parks officials are asking people recreating on the Big
Sioux to remain cautious.

A 300-foot no wake zone is in effect on both Lake Poinsett and
Blue Dog Lake. Boaters within 300 feet of the shoreline
anywhere on these two lakes must operate their boats at a
slow speed – about 5 miles per hour.
