Default Waubay, South Dakota Area

Hey y’all,

Since our May trip to Canada has been cancelled, my father and I decided to take my 7 year old boy up to the Waubay area for a few days to catch some walleyes and panfish. I have read as much as I can on this site and others, many people get pretty heated about people asking about that area it seems. I have read all of the info posted by SD online in regards to recent lake studies and such and we have a gameplan somewhat figured out. I have heard that not all of the lakes will be accessible for our 21ft Lund, as some of the landings would make access difficult.

So I won’t ask for anything to be posted directly to this thread. If anyone feels like sharing any info to help us narrow down lake choices for this time of year that could be of great help, just PM me please. Like I said, we have a general idea where we are going to start, but I welcome any information that anyone wants to share. Would love to get my son on some decent fishing, and explore a new area!

I am always willing to return the favor and share our trip info if anyone wishes. Let me know if I can help.

Thanks in advance!
KC

I am sure thereís other bait shops in that area. But the few times I fished in that area ( never on Waubay) Sportsman Cove in Webster SD (15 miles away) was a real asset. They tell which fishing license for which lake, have a selection of lake maps, some of them lakes donít have a chip. Weekly fishing reports 605-345-2468. That where I would start.

Depending on the time of year you plan on taking this trip I would probably just head to the river. Sounds like you have the boat to handle it and most if not all ramps will be just fine.

Weíve discussed it before, but I got off the river for 3 or 4 years while fishing was bad. I spent my weekends in Webster/waubay area while away from the river system and did very well there. I have now switched back to the river system as fishing has come back around and the scenery is much better. I do enjoy staying at the galley hotel in Webster though. Probably my favorite fisherman hotel of the many Iíve stayed in, this not including camps and cabins.

River may be better than ever right now for numbers of decent fish and oahe has come back to include daily overs. I fish the south end and jump up there late summer and fall.

Thanks yíall for the replies. Greatly appreciated. We have lodging already booked so will probably just fish the Waubay area and do our best to find fish on the many lakes around there. I have been following the Sportmans Cove report and they do give some decent info. Will definitely stop by there and show them some appreciation.

Keep the advice coming. Much appreciated.

Default Sportsmanís Cove Webster

NDStallman is spot on. Sportsmanís Cove in Webster is very helpful. As I recall, they are very close to lodging, with fish cleaning and plug ins for your batteries.
You have a ton of options in this area. Bitter, Enemy Swim, Pickeral, Lynn.
.... cool region full of glacial lakes. Donít overthink Waubay, and trust your electronics. If you see fish, you can get Ďme to bite.
