Fisherman found dead on Clark County lake

A fisherman is found dead near his capsized boat on a Clark County lake.

Clark County Sheriff Rob McGraw says another fisherman had noticed a pickup and boat trailer parked in the same spot at Dry Lake #2 north of Willow Lake for several days last week.

He notified authorities, and a search began Saturday morning.

Codington County Search and Rescue along with Game, Fish and Parks officers found the man’s capsized boat about 200 yards from shore. The man’s body was found a short time later near the boat.

The man’s name has not been released. McGraw says he was 75 years old and from the Sioux Falls area.

McGraw says the victim may have suffered from a medical condition and fell overboard.
