Fishing over the weekend was really good, but the temperatures have been around 100 lately, so be safe when you're in central South Dakota. Summer is definitely here.
The Missouri River in South Dakota is a great place to fish not only for walleye, but also smallmouth bass, northern, white bass and catfish.
