Dakota Prairie Guide Services offers most personalized and affordable guided fishing trips in Chamberlain, South Dakota. Owner and operator James Klages is a devoted fisherman and guide who likes all his guests to enjoy their time catching fish and to cherish this memory for a lifetime.

Fishing in Chamberlain allows access to the Missouri River, Lake Francis Case, and Lake Sharpe. These waters are well stocked with a variety of Smallmouth Bass and Walleye. Using a variety of techniques and bait, and depending on the species you’ll be targeting, James will dish out pro tips so you can have as many fish in the boat as possible.

James runs full day trips that last seven hours and are suited to individuals or a group of anglers and kids. The fishing is considered world class year round with early to mid summer being unbelievable and again in the fall until freeze up. The season runs from March 10th to November 30th. At this time, you can catch up to 100 Walley in a day! Other species are caught at different times of the year.

You will fish aboard a clean and well maintained 2017 Lund Pro V Impact Boat that has a capacity for up to four guests. It has all the extras such as a cooler for drinks and food, a livewell for the bait, a wireless trolling motor, a GPS unit, a fishfinder, and a multimedia system for entertainment. The vessel is equipped with life jackets and your guide is CPR-trained.

Dakota Prairie Guide Services provides the necessary fishing gear such as high-quality tackle, rods, reels, ice, and bait. Cleaning, packaging, and freezing of fish is also included. You are responsible for obtaining a valid South Dacota fishing license prior to your trip. If you wish, you can bring own drinks, snacks, and lunch.

James advises you also bring sunglasses, sunscreen, insect repellant, and a camera to capture the glorious moments.
