Hotspotter!I haven't fished Pactola, but have driven past it several times. Looks like easy access to fish. The last time we were there we biked the Mickelson trail and the taxi driver that shuttled us the 100 miles from Lead to Edgemont mentioned that many twenty pound plus lakers come out of Pactola every year. I checked some you tube vids when we got home and saw some nice fish caught. It's only about twenty minutes from Hill City to Pactola.
