Re: Anyone Fishing in ND?
Yes, below Lake Sakakawea. There are browns, bows, cutts, king salmon and warm water fish species (pike and walleye). Most of the cold water fish stop at Stanton which is 15 miles downsteam. Very limited shore access for the entire 15 miles except for the chutes (just below the dam), the ramp area and the campground stretch which are all in the first mile or so below the dam. All of the fisherman there are spin casters after the walleyes. Its difficult to wade due to the speed and depth of the river. A boat of some kind is the best way to fish the river but they can be caught from shore also in the first mile. I float it with a driftboat. A canoe would work. You just will not be able to go back upstream so be prepared for a long day float to Stanton or camp on the way and make a 2 day trip of it.
The Big Horn river is about 300 miles west. Its a decent drive but not bad to flyfish one of the best trout rivers in the world.
exryan, where are you from? Im assuming here working in the oil field due to being in that area of ND.
