Hunting and Fishing

Fishing is one of the oldest and most popular outdoor activities in America and the Hot Springs’ proximity to three lakes means that Hot Springs is a place you can fish year-round. Fishing licenses are required and are available for purchase in town at ACE Hardware, Jenny’s Recreation, out at the Angostura Common Cents, and can also be purchased online on the South Dakota Game, Fish & Parks website.

Angostura Reservoir is well known for its walleye, smallmouth bass, crappie, and also supports northern pike, largemouth bass, perch and bluegill and has fishing pole rentals, a fishing dock, and an on-site fish cleaning station in case you want to have your catch for dinner while camping. Cold Brook and Cottonwood Springs Lake are home to largemouth bass and rainbow trout.
