PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - A survey has found that South Dakota anglers are most concerned with access to glacial lakes in the northeast, the cost of fishing licenses and competition with non-resident anglers.

The Pierre Capital Journal reports (https://bit.ly/1si2yMF ) that the survey was conducted by Larry Gigliotti of the South Dakota State University Co-op unit. The preliminary results were presented recently during the Game, Fish and Parks Commission’s meeting at Custer State Park.

More than 31,000 of the more than 230,000 people who fished in the state last year responded to the survey.

Resident anglers in 2015 spent just under 2.5 million days fishing. Nonresidents spent just over 500,000 days fishing in the state. Walleyes were the preferred fish for both residents and nonresidents.
