Devils Lake fishing season is open year-round and fish populations are at their highest levels in 10 years. Out-of-state anglers will experience some great April and early May walleye and pike action, when these seasons are closed in their home states. Fishing now could be from shore, from a boat or from the ice. "Starting about mid-April, I'd guess about April 20 this year, the current areas under bridges will be open. We have a good snow-pack and will see incoming water soon," said long-time North Dakota guide Jason Feldner.
