this is from the gfp's website, maybe i read it wrong but,  here it is. Injunctions from previous court actions (Duerre v. Hepler and Parks v. Cooper) remain in effect.

GFP Works on Reopening public access after open water compromise passes

Pierre, S.D. -With passage of House Bill 1001 by the SD Legislature, the South Dakota Game, Fish and Parks (GFP) is now in the process of removing the cables that have blocked boat ramps on nonmeandered waters; primarily in the eastern half of the state.

 By the end of today, GFP staff will have removed all cables that previously restricted access to nearly 30 nonmeandered lakes. Full services will be restored by the end of the week; which includes having docks back in the water.

 "I want to thank the Legislature for taking quick action yesterday," said Kelly Hepler, GFP secretary. "I encourage everyone to join together for implementation of the Open Waters Compromise."

 Going forward, the department will work closely with the GFP Commission to engage the public in setting rules to implement sections of the bill; including the ability for landowners to mark water above private land closed. In the interim, landowners can still post the waters with conspicuous markers after notifying the department. GFP will work with landowners to maintain our state’s recreational opportunities for the public.   

 Injunctions from previous court actions (Duerre v. Hepler and Parks v. Cooper) remain in effect. As these waters are reopened GFP encourages all to get out and enjoy the great outdoors

over 60 "markers" have been pre ordered  as of yesterday already(gfp's office).  Thats just the beginning. If i was from out of state, i wouldn't bother with sd now.  Nothing like getting on a lake and seeing markers and not knowing where you can fish on public trust waters(when you get on the water and only see 4 markers, how can you tell where u can fish or not, plus how do we know if those markers are not on public land? ) , after you got on by legal means.   This is possibly the biggest joke ever.  just a example, lake lily , alot of state land that is in over 25 ft deep and how in the world do they mark it and keep it marked for ice fishing.  Another one is cattail lake(if a non elected body/landowner petitions to open and gets it open) and he marks off the state land. over 700 acres in state land scattered over the lake. I hate see the small business owners fail. but it will probably happen within 2 years if this keeps in law(in a way it would be a good deal if all the water was closed to prove to the governor that this is bad and illegal). Because certain people want it privatized and this bill is just the beginning.  I encourage everyone to contact the gfp/landowners and have them verify if their markers are in the correct place and not on public land. And if they can't or if they do and they are on public land, file charges of criminal trust-passing or closing off public land. I promise you this will happen. Wind, ice, human error/purpose.  Plus one lodge has already taken down WPA signs and put no trespassing signs up on the land/water. the WPA office forced them to change it(was done last year).  I wrote this on my phone, so apologizes for errors.

I agree mbaiter , I am glad this crap show of a law is only going to last one year . There are some sportsman groups and sportsmen working on this right now to get it changed . From I catch on Facebook there is some landowners that want to close all the waters and go after meandering lakes also . It is really sad with the way things are turning out
