Pierre is the capital city of South Dakota and rightfully so as It’s located in the dead center of the state along the beautiful Missouri River. The Missouri River offers ample opportunity for anglers and family fun.

Late spring and early summer bring some of the best fishing opportunities of the year. Anglers are typically pitching jigs or pulling bottom bouncers in fairly shallow water taking advantage of the aggressive post-spawn walleye bite.

Pierre also offers some easy shore access for anglers looking to wet a line while in town on business.

After an eventful day on the water, Pierre has plenty of dining and lodging options available.

Boat ramps, fuel, and bait shops can all be found right in town making this a no hassle fishing destination.

Check out Pierre, SD this summer for your family getaway.
