Davenport Dams Opened for Fishing
City of Sturgis opens Davenport Dams area for fishing
News Staff - September 8, 2017

STURGIS, S.D. - The City of Sturgis has opened the Davenport Dams area to fishing for a limited time. 

The dams are scheduled to be drained in the near future so engineers can inspect and test the structural integrity of the dam structures.  All licensed anglers are invited to fish the dams during the next two weeks prior to the draining operation.  All State fishing regulations apply.

To access the Dams from Sturgis, drive south on Vanocker Canyon Road.  Approximately 2.8 miles south of Belle Joli Winery turn left onto U.S. Forest Service property.  Drive a short distance to a small parking area.  Hike approximately 2.07 miles into the dams.

There is no vehicle access available - you must hike into the Dam area.

The area will close to fishing around September 25 once the draining project begins.
