PIERRE, S.D. – High water has caused South Dakota Game, Fish and Parks Secretary Kelly Hepler to declare a temporary "no wake zone" on McCook Lake in Union County.
In an executive order from earlier this year, Governor Kristi Noem named Hepler a "temporary designee," giving him the ability to create such restrictions.
The no wake zone will restrict boats to no greater than 5 miles per hour on the lake.
The no wake zone will be in place until high water conditions subside.
