GF&P: Lake Kampeska infested with zebra mussels

August 26, 2020

Pierre, S.D. – The South Dakota Department of Game, Fish and Parks has confirmed the presence of adult zebra mussels in Lake Kampeska.

GF&P Fisheries Manager Mark Ermer says staff were sent to the lake and found zebra mussels in seven sites that were surveyed.

Lake Kampeska is now considered infested with zebra mussels.

The Game, Fish and Parks Commission can designate waters infested with zebra mussels as containment waters.

Specific decontamination requirements exist for boats kept in those waters continuously for three or more days, or that cannot have all water drained from them.
