Fishing Report

Weekly Fishing Report Wednesday, August 5, 2020

Lewis and Clark Lake:

From what I’m hearing the lake remains dirty but there are a few walleye still being caught on the troll. Also, the catfish in the chutes are chewing still.  I haven’t been out too much but I do know people who are still having some luck. 

Lake Yankton:

Lake has been a little slower for bass but you can still throw plastics and topwater for a few early morning bass. Also, try lipless midday but seems a little slower. Never underestimate the action for a family on a slip bobber and crawler or minnow. Usually a “go-to” for me if I’m looking for action

Missouri River:

River is typically decent this time of year for all species from the bank or boat. If you are looking for fun it’s pretty action-packed with a slip sinker and snell hook with crawler or minnow.  If you want a decent walleye/sauger bite I tend to look at evening fishing.  Use a jig and minnow or throw some rapalas in the fast water. Just get out there and try something new or your old trusty, it’s better than working 😁.

Good Luck!
