Creeling The Red

Creel Survey Being Conducted on Red River
The North Dakota Game and Fish Department has contracted with a private consulting firm to conduct a creel survey on the Red River. A similar creel was last conducted in 2001 by the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources.
Clerks will conduct angler interviews at various sites throughout spring, summer and fall. Anglers are asked to cooperate and answer questions thoroughly, as interviews take only a few minutes. Information obtained is extremely important and kept confidential.
Creel survey information is useful in assessing angler demographics, harvest and catch rates, catch-and-release information, and angling effort.
The information collected during this survey will be used to help manage recreational fishing opportunities on the Red River.
