Fishing for smallmouth bass, channel catfish, white crappie, walleye, sauger, white bass and yellow perch at Lake Francis Case in South Dakota.

Lake Francis Case, SD

Over 100 miles long with 540 miles of shoreline, Lake Francis Case is a fertile section of The Missouri River. 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. Bank fishing opportunities exist by the hundreds, and numerous boat launch ramps are scattered up and down the lake providing boating access from most any direction. Marinas, campgrounds, RV parks, bait & tackle, convenience stores, restaurants and lodging can be found throughout the area.
