Something's Fishy in North Dakota

The never-ending fishing season in North Dakota is heating up.

Fishing in North Dakota is as diverse as the anglers on the water. Its offerings range from the popular walleye to northern pike to perch and bass or salmon. Heck, anglers can even try snagging the prehistoric paddlefish at the confluence area in May. There are trout in Lake Sakakawea and big ol' catfish in the Red River.

Whatever your choice of fight, North Dakota has the battle for you, whether you're long-lining on the big lake, casting crankbaits from a lake shore or trolling while floating slowly down a river. The North Dakota Game and Fish Department has all of the information you need to get started. Click here for guides and outfitters that can find the area hot spots or click here for some of the state's most proven fishing spots.
