You’ll find some of the state’s best fishing in Lewis and Clarke Lake SRA. Located near the South Dakota’s border with Nebraska, this lake is home to many fish species, including walleye, sauger, largemouth bass, smallmouth bass, bluegill, crappie, northern pike, and saugeye (a walleye-sauger hybrid). This lake is an especially great location for catching channel and flathead catfish. You’ll find many of these fish in the Weigand-Burbach area where jetties have been added to improve the fish habitat. Head out in the spring to catch walleye or sauger. You can typically find these fish in the sandy flats and shallow waters. If you’re targeting bass, head out in the early summer and look in the weedy areas and near rocky structures. The amenities at Lewis and Clark Lake SRA include boat rentals, a fishing pier, several docks, and a fish-cleaning station.
