Have heard there are smallmouth bass in Roy Lake and that there is decent cabins there too. Might like to spend three days fishing. Am thinking end of June might be good. We would bring our own boat.

Any thoughts from those who have been there?

The fishing is good but the earlier the better and this spring I would go in May. The state park is decent which is where some cabins are located. The wind can be a real challenge on this lake and for that matter all the lake in this area.

If you bring your own boat, you can also have the opportunity to fish other lakes in the area. There is a lot of good fishing nearby...

Me and my gal are going to be at Roy lake SP this coming weekend. We have not been in that area of SD and are looking forward to getting out there.

Can someone help out with some fishing reports from Roy and the surrounding lakes and maybe some ideas on what is working to catch some fish.

Thanks for the help!

Andy

Roy is a great lake to fish! The action might not be fast and furious like they show on TV, but the average size is great. Be patient, fish shallow, and you can get some very nice walleyes mixed in with the pike and smallmouth. The bays go on forever, don't be afraid to fish the parts that have no cabins or boats in them. You never know what you'll find out there.

    • The question was in regards to doors. As for breaking glass and entering the home I will remind you that locks only keep honest people out, if someone wants to get in to your house they will. Del you always have a comment that is not relevant to the topic being discussed. Matter of fact you have a comment on everything posted. So my glass door on my house has been there for thirty years and guess what Del... no one has broken it yet!
    • He was talking about updating and upgrading our nuclear weapons,  which aren't related to the middle east.    Getting the 53 brigade combat teams up to readiness standards also will cost money.  
    • How much of that $6 trillion do you suppose is military spending?  I’d venture to guess a large amount of it.  Now while he talks about spending so much in the middle east and ignoring issues at home he apparently wants to add an additional $54 billion to the defense budget which will more than likely be funneled back into the middle eat one bomb at a time.   He might make sense in what he says from time to time but then his actions seem immediately contradict his words. Should we believe the words or the actions more?
    •  Decriminalization only makes small possession and usage kinda illegal.    Laws still have to be upheld.   Mexican cartels still would not be allowed to ship tons of cocaine over the boarder. Doctor still can't write false scripts.  Gangs still cannot run drug dens Staus quo     Just push for complete legalization. Regulate through the government. Lower the cost of product.     Cross your fingers you don't get a Russian heroine epidemic.    Freedom restored.      
    • "We spend $6 trillion in the Middle East, and we have potholes all over our highways and our roads"

      Every now and then it is hard to argue with Trump, the positives aren't many but he is not wrong about everything.
    •     Also, how do you explain the growth rate of U.S. incarcerations since Nixon began the War on Drugs in 1971?   You don't think there is big money involved in prisons?       http://fox6now.com/2017/02/25/private-prison-stocks-up-100-since-president-trumps-win/

    •   He won't ask anyone's advice - that's a big part of the problem.  But judging by his actions and words, he fully intends to return to the criminalization/prison approach.  You know, the method that was a complete failure in the past.   Why wouldn't pharma be worried about heroin and meth?  They make versions of both, so it is direct competition.  There is also real life evidence to suggest that marijuana can be used as a replacement for opioids for pain, so that is a reason for them to be opposed to the legalization of weed, also.  Do you have a better explanation as to why Trump wants to step up enforcement of federal laws against legal purveyors of marijuana according to their state law, rather than simply changing the FDA/DEA classification?                   They would be comparable, except they have spent close to a trillion dollars on the War on Drugs since Nixon signed it into law,      
    •   Is this speculation or do you have a source for this information?    
    • Without media, you will only get what news from the party in control that they wish to give you. With no freedom of the press, no matter what they say, you will eventually lose more than the 1rst. amendment.  Let's see what happens when the President addresses Congress and if it's a rally speech or a substance speech with policy? If it's just rah-rah??, with the corrupt  media,----make up your own mind.
