The eastern part of South Dakota has experienced a wetter than normal spring and summer. Areas like Watertown are experiencing water levels up to eight inches above normal for this time of year.

While the water can have a negative effect on crops and plants, fish populations should see a boost in their numbers. Brian Blackwell is a fisheries biologist for South Dakota Game Fish and Parks in the Webster area. He claims the unusually wet year on the eastern side of the state will ultimately help the multiple species of fish.
