Lewis And Clark Lake, South Dakota

Boating, camping and fishing at Lewis And Clark Lake

Straddling the NE-SD border, Lewis And Clark Lake is a 31,000-acre lake between Yankton and Springfield, SD. For boaters, there are several boat launch ramps on both the SD and NE sides of the lake. There is a full marina with boat rentals plus boating, fishing and camping supplies. The marina area also has boat rentals and a restaurant. Fishing enthusiasts, boaters and vacationers will find over 90 miles of shoreline to explore and enjoy. This fertile fishery is a 25-mile long impoundment on the Missouri River, with excellent fishing. Catfish, walleye, sauger and saugeye are among the favorites. Walleye, sauger, saugeye and catfish spend summers and winters in deeper water, often relating to the river channel, and move shallow in spring preferring rocky areas. The lake also has a healthy population of bass, crappie, sunfish and northern pike. You'll find plenty of shoreline accessible for fishing from the bank.
