If you’re an avid walleye angler, and are from the upper Midwest, there is no doubt that you have heard of the walleye factory. Otherwise known as Chamberlain, South Dakota.

Chamberlain is a small town nestled on the banks of the Missouri River in central South Dakota on Lake Francis Case. Lake Francis Case is a massive body of water stretching 107 miles long with over 540 miles of shoreline. It has set the stage for many professional walleye tournaments throughout the years. It is still considered one of the best walleye fisheries in North America. What makes Chamberlain so unique is the central location in the heart of some of the best early season walleye fishing found in the Midwest.


Tips For Early Season Walleye Tactics

It’s that time of year again where walleye anglers are biting at the bit to get their boats back on the water and get hooked up with some walleyes.

The most typical approach this time of year is to target walleyes in the river systems, as the rivers are usually first to thaw and provide the warmer water and provide great conditions for spawning walleye.

In many cases, warm water discharges generated by power plants, such as Gavin’s point Dam in Yankton, South Dakota or Fort Randal Dam near Picks Town, South Dakota, will hold lots of walleye very early in the year. The fish have moved upriver to spawn and once they reach the dam they are confined to that area as their up-river path has come to an end. Most of these tailrace area’s provide great rip rap habitat for spawning walleye.
