Bass fishing in the Glacial Lakes region

Bass fishing is starting to pick up in the glacial lakes region of South Dakota.  Warmer temperatures paired with high waters have created a bass haven in many of the lakes. The high water has submerged many trees and shrubs, the perfect habitat for big bass. Small mouth, large mouth, and white bass can be found in many of the lakes.

Big StoneLake in northeastern South Dakota boasts some of the best small and large mouth bass fishing. Schmidt’s Landing, located on the shores of Big Stone Lake, provides lodging, camping, dining, and fishing rentals. They also have a great website with accurate and up to date fishing reports. 

Roy Lake, Waubay, and Lake Thompson are also good spots for locating schools of bass and for camping. Each one offers an exceptional state campground and park with full hook-ups and bathroom facilities. They also have fish cleaning stations for your big catch.

Local bait shops are the best source of information on fishing if you are not from the area. There is also the fishing report from Dakota Angler that provides great info on the fish you can find in each of the lakes.

There is nothing quite like the aggressive bite of a bass. The glacial lakes region in South Dakota offers some of the best bass fishing around. Pristine lakes, few people, great camping and lodging make fishing this region something to remember.
