This summer I am moving to Sioux Falls and am just curious if anyone knows what kinds of fishing there is to be had in the area?

I am not really looking for anyones specific hotspot...but if you want to tell me I will listen...lol

Just curious if someone could let me know what bodies of water are around the area and what types of fish they hold?

Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day...Teach a man to fish and he will sit in a boat and drink beer all day

there are plenty of places to fish near Sioux Falls.

Of course you have the big sioux, that has several place via shore, and some from boat south of Sioux Falls, but the river finally now is open to recreation after the Governor closed it to high water level and rapid flow do to flooding.

As far as lakes to the West in the very edge of town you have Family Park, and about 8 miles west there is Wall Lake and a few more miles is Loss lake and then Lake vermillion as well as the Vermillion River.

To the North West a little further you have Twins lakes, Diamond Lake, Island Lake etc.

To the South East you have Lake Alvin, and further South East there is Lake Lakota.

All of these hold fish and are relatively small lakes. I actually live just down the road from Alvin so fish that often.

Good luck on your move, and let me know if you have any more questions.

When you've ruled out the impossible, whatever is left, no matter how improbable, is what happened...

my main theory is that I usually drive to some of the lakes closer to sioux falls, but then I realize its only few more miles to others and I end up driving further.

Other lakes to look at would be Brant Lake, Lake Thompson. Or even down in Yankton you can get the Missouri river and fish above or below the dam, and also Lake Yankton is a great lake to fish as well.

I would strongly suggest going out to the SDGFP site and learn the regs as to what lakes are Trophy lakes, no wake lakes, etc.

again good luck.

I didn't see you posted this here, but I posted a response in the SW MN forum...pretty much everything I posted was covered by the other guys here. Plenty of places to wet a line, especially when the water gets hard!
