This 100,000-acre lake in the south-central part of the state, runs from Pierre on the north end, to Pickstown at the south end. Walleye are the big deal here with both quantity and quality. Anglers soon learn that walleye are caught virtually everywhere the lake through the warm season as well as through the ice in winter. Perch and crappie are other favorites here, especially when ice fishing. The lake also has nice populations of catfish, sauger, and white bass.
