Paddlefish season

Activity starts May 1 at the confluence of Missouri and Yellowstone rivers

Paddlefish is the only species of fish with an in-season closure in North Dakota. That's why many people get out as soon as the snagging season begins May 1 in the area around the confluence of the Missouri and Yellowstone rivers in northwest North Dakota. The season lasts only through the end of May or until pre-determined harvest limits are reached.
