Towns, counties, cities, regions….every corner of the state has a Fair and it’s simply part of summer in the Midwest. The North Dakota State Fair in Minot coming soooooon. No matter which corner of North Dakota you travel to this summer bring along a rod and reel. With Gulp and synthetic bait you don’t even need to worry about finding worms or minnows. And if your like me, you’ll be up a couple hours earlier than the rest so sneak on out the door and head down to the Souris River, Homme Dam, Lake Tschida or Dead Colt Creek and enjoy some peace and quiet as well!
The North Dakota Game and Fish Department will host thousands of visitors to its Conservation and Outdoors Skills Park July 23-31 at the State Fair in Minot.
Visitors will be treated to an array of exhibits and useful information as the park will be staffed from 1-7 p.m. daily. Pathways to Hunting, Fishing and Trapping are major attractions where fishing, shooting, archery and furtaking are taught to interested kids and adults. Of course, the opportunity to catch a fish brings excitement to the littlest angler.
Don’t forget to check out the live fish display, or stop by the furbearer exhibit and discuss trapping with the experts, or relax and enjoy native prairie plantings.
An added incentive – it’s all free.
The Conservation and Outdoors Skills Park is located on the north end of the grounds adjacent to the All Seasons Arena.
