The South Dakota Game, Fish and Parks Department reported Thursday the aquatic invasive species has been found at two boat landings on Lake Oahe. They were at the East Shore and Cow Creek ramps upstream of Pierre. High-profile signs will be placed at access areas along the Missouri River reservoir, which extends into North Dakota. Officials say additional steps will be taken to engage boaters and others.
