South Dakota Walleye Fishing Guide on The Missouri
Join us for a fully guided or self-guided walleye fishing trip in South Dakota on beautiful Lake Francis Case. Depending on the time of year and conditions, we fish the Missouri River around Platte, SD, Chamberlain, SD, or Pickstown, SD. Our South Dakota river system has an abundant supply of walleye and smallmouth bass, with an occasional Northern Pike smacking your line. The walleyes native to the Missouri river system range from 15” to 28”, with a lot in the 16”-18” range, great eating fish. For your South Dakota walleye fishing trip we tend to either jig, drift with jigs or bottom bouncers, or troll crankbaits to entice great fish. We fish how you like to, as it is your trip. Your guide will access conditions and work with you to decide on how to go after the fish. In addition to catching fish, your Platte Creek Guide will help show you the sites and share the history of the mighty Missouri River. We will clean and vacuum seal your fish to allow your walleye to be as fresh as the day it was caught.

Lake Francis Case
Lake Francis Case is a large body of water within the Missouri River system. The lake is a reservoir impounded by Fort Randall Dam with a maximum depth of 140 feet. The reservoir consists of 102,000 acres of gently winding river, which is ideal for fishing and other recreational activities.
Thanks to the Corps of Engineers, the prairie terrain along Lake Francis Case is off-limits to development, creating a peaceful paradise for outdoor enthusiasts. The lake holds walleye, pike, sunfish, perch, catfish, and smallmouth bass, although walleye and smallmouth are the primary targets for most anglers.
This is the perfect location for a relaxing day of South Dakota Guided guided fishing!
