Dakota Prairie Guide Service

Located in Chamberlain, South Dakota along the beautiful Missouri River. I provide one of the most personalized and affordable guided fishing experiences in the area.  I primarily fish Lake Francis Case or Lake Sharpe which are reservoirs of the Missouri River.

south-dakota-guide-fish4The walleye fishing can be done year round.  With the bite usually starting in late March right after the ice begins to depart.  The bite just continues to get better as the spring progresses into summer when it can be absolutely unbelievable (it is not uncommon during this time of year to put a 100 plus fish in the boat in a day).  This continues until the Gizzard Shad (the walleye’s primary forage) become a consumable size, which usually occurs in late July or August.  The bite slows a little during this time (25 to 50 fish in the boat in a day), but will become better as the water temperatures begin to drop into the low 60’s/mid 50’s and the walleyes are putting on the feed bags for the upcoming winter.

Originally I am from Ortonville, MN and I moved to the Chamberlain area in 1996. I grew up on a farm east of Ortonville and thanks to my father who was an avid outdoorsman, I began hunting and fishing at a very young age. Because of this, hunting and fishing are more than a hobby for me; it is an obsession.  That obsession has allowed me to gain vast knowledge and experience on how to fish for all species of fresh water fish, hunt upland game birds, deer, turkey, and water fowl.

south-dakota-guide-fish2I moved to Chamberlain to begin a teaching career, but I also chose the Chamberlain area for the vast opportunities for hunting and fishing. In 1998 I received the opportunity to fulfill a lifetime dream of becoming a fishing and hunting guide to supplement my teaching salary. I eventually decided to become a full-time guide and substitute teacher to supplement my guiding income.
