Default Fly fishing in ND

Hey guys I live in Minot and Im looking to get into fly fishing. Any of you out there in the area? Id like a little bit of help, maybe a fishing partner as I dont know anyone who fly fishes. I sent an email to the fly fishing club here but didnt get a response back.

Thank You

Im in Minot also and can point you in the right direction. Dakota fly fishers doesn't have much going on anymore. The club in Bismarck is more active. I have a drift boat and we float the Missouri regularly below Sak.

PM me when your back. You will need a 6 or 8 wt rod, a sink tip 200 or 250grain line and a floating line. Get some of the biggest poppers you can for top water pike. Large Buggers and articulated flies for trout on the Missouri.

I've always heard that the walleye fishing is great in N. Dakota, so I'd give that a go. Here is a link to a great thread on this forum for walleye.
walleye fly fishing.
