Lake Francis Case
Around Chamberlain , Lake Sharpe is producing walleye, and the bite is good. From Crow Creek to the Big Bend Dam the bite is good on spinners with minnows or crawlers. Water temp is around 55 degrees. Anglers are fishing in 10-20 feet.
On Francis Case in the Platte area fishing for walleye is fair, but is picking up. Warmer weather is helping. Anglers are using spinners and crawlers with some pulling crank baits. Smallmouth are being caught here also.
At the Pickstown - Wagner – Lake Andes areas the fishing is good. Most anglers are fishing in 12-30 feet and some are casting towards shore. Pease Creek has been doing well on bass and black crappie. As with other areas, the warmer weather will give fishing a boost. The water temp is around 55 degrees here too. Shore fishing both above and below the Fort Randall Dam has been very good.
