Fishing Reports

Ice is starting to come off the lakes more and more each day.  Once we have open water, we will start updating member reports again weekly.  In the meantime, please check out the SD Game, Fish & Parks weekly report to the right.

Check out our resort and bait shop links below for more information.  Check out the SD Game, Fish & Parks weekly report to the right also. 

Tell them Glacial Lakes & Prairies sent you!

It has been tough getting on lakes as well as travel on the lakes.  Lots of water, slush pockets with 1-2 feet of water and still plenty of snow.  We are going to wait until we have open water.  It is just too dangerous to venture out on any of the local lakes.  I do see some people trying to walk out.  Also I have heard that some of our shallow water lakes may have significant winter kill.  I am looking forward to the open water season.  With all the new water coming into our lakes, the fishing should be great. - Submitted by Fish Hunter Guide Service, March 27, 2019

Not a lot of fishermen in the area.  Snow is starting to shrink on lakes.  There are snow pockets under the snow, keeping you tight to the shoreline.  Snowmobile and tracks working best.  Might be able to use ATV’s after a few more days of shrinking snow.  We’ve seen some black spots in the fields.  Deer are migrating out, and we’ve seen some Canadian geese showing up, but no Snow geese yet. – Submitted by Sportsman’s Cove, March 18, 2019

Limits of panfish are still being caught at nearby lakes.  Access to area lakes are pretty much nonexistent unless you have a machine with tracks.  Ice is good, snow is deep, and the fishermen are few. – Submitted by Hidden Hill Lodge, March 13, 2019
