RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) - A survey found that South Dakota anglers like the wide variety of game fish in the state’s lakes, streams, reservoirs and ponds. But they’d like improvements in access for shore fishing and opportunities to hook larger fish.

The Rapid City Journal reports ( ) those initial findings are from the first such survey done by the South Dakota Game, Fish and Parks Department in more than 10 years.

The GFP is looking at plans for all fisheries in the state and the survey is part of that process.

About 40 fishermen and members of several clubs recently attended a presentation on the results in Rapid City. The findings will be available online after they’re presented to the Game, Fish and Parks Commission in January.
