As the Gateway to the Glacial Lake, the Britton area’s best kept secret has been our abundant fishing and excellent hunting. “Roy Lake was rated one of the best 96 places in America to catch a record bass” according the Field & Stream, March 2004. Walleye, perch, northern pike and pan fish are also in great abundance. This same area is also experiencing the greatest number of pheasants, ducks and geese in recent years. According to the March 2004 Prairie Business magazine, “South Dakota supports nearly 70 percent of the continental duck population and is situated on two migratory flyways-the Mississippi and the Central.” “These are migratory flyways that millions and millions of birds of hundreds of species travel and stop along their way.” With these flyways this same area is famous for bird watching and on any given day Bald Eagles are present. Whether hunting, fishing or simply viewing birds and wildlife there are few places in America to offer these types of numbers or species.
