Captain Norm's Bait Shop is nestled near the scenic Missouri River in Southeastern South Dakota and is located at the entrance to Lewis & Clark Lake which is the first reservoir on the Missouri River Reservoir System. Lewis & Clark Lake has abundant numbers of Walleyes, Sauger, Smallmouth bass, Largemouth bass, Northern pike, White bass, Crappies and Catfish to the Lewis & Clark State Park South Dakota's largest state park with nearly 400 campsites. We are also located on the tail waters of Gavin's Point Dam which offers great fishing for a wide species of game fish and offers snagging for Spoonsbill/Paddelfish during the month of October and archery in June. This area of the Missouri River offers some of the best fishing in the Midwest and offers a variety of family fun and recreation for your next vacation. Lewis & Clark Lake offers many outdoor activities like fishing, swimming, boating, sailing, biking and hiking.

We offer South Dakota and Nebraska resident and non-resident fishing and hunting licenses and annual park permits.
