North Dakota Fishing & Hunting Reports
The last ice fishermen that I seen on the ice at White Earth was this past Saturday.
While I would think that you could still walk on the pressure ridges look terrible and the shorelines have some open water. The ice is also the dark blue green color of crystalized ice and does not look very inviting. My last ice trip was about the 22nd of March and we did have some good late ice fishing, it seems the best ice fishing is always on the worst ice.

The boats are hitting the river but I have not had any feedback and I am sure many of them are trying to do a little beaver hunting. Before you get to excited about beaver hunting you may want to check prices as the fur market for anything but coyote seemed poor this year.

This time of the year we always have some calls and emails about paddlefishing and at this time it appears we will have fairly low water so fishing could be very good. It is still a month away from the May 1st opener and hopefully we will see more mountain snowpack. Does not look like any major changes for this season but with the new proclamations coming out next year in 2016, that would be when I would expect to see the changes happen. With the slow down in the oil exploration and so many added motels and restaurants getting reservations and better service in Williston will be much better for those coming to visit. Lots of new places to eat and very seldom a waiting line to get a seat makes the area much more appealing to the fishermen.

Don't forget to check out our facebook page as my son Shane does a great job of keeping it current compared to me on the web page. I guess just a sign of the times and changing of the guard!

Looking forward to seeing all of our old friends and hopefully this is the year you all give Williston another try, if you have not been here for a while you will enjoy all the changes.
