North Dakota Fishing & Hunting Reports
16
We have heard rumors that paddlefish season is closing Friday at some time but our calls to the North Dakota Game & Fish have not been returned and no one we could talk to seems to know anything about it. Please call the NDG&F if you want to know for sure and if anyone sees anything in writing let us know. Call 701-328-6300 or 701-328-6305 for more information. Thanks

Fred Ryckman of the NDG&F has contacted me and confirmed that harvest season will close at the end of the day on Friday the 17th. Catch & release only after that and be sure to check the proclamation for times and days of catch and release.

Under what grounds do they close the season after Friday? Any idea of the numbers? I guess that means I won't be coming. :( Could of told me that when I bought my tag yesterday at their office.

Every year it is a challenge to keep up with how many fish have been caught and when the season will be shut down. We try our best to inform the public who we sell licenses and tackle to but get little or no help from anyone about the progress of the season or when it will be closed. We are trying to make sure we have enough tackle and tags to keep our customers supplied without having a garage full when season suddenly closes. We sell more tags than all other outlets combined but never have a report of progress from the NDG&F until they decide to close season. Why they do not help us to keep our customers and their csutomers more informed I will never understand. I was also embarassed by the way the Williston Wildlife Management area looked and the fact that the gate going in was never opened for the fishermen. That area is managed by the North Dakota Game & Fish with your dollars! Sorry, the final number as of 6 PM on closing day was 764, with the final three days being 27, 11, & 8. Once again North Star Caviar or the North Dakota Game & Fish have not released any final info that I am aware of. All the information that we have to try and keep people informed has come from friends and customers that fish or work with North Star Caviar.
