A change in regulations concerning anglers fishing the Red and Bois de Sioux rivers involves those who fish from shore.
Effective April 1, anglers fishing from shore on the North Dakota side of the Red and Bois de Sioux rivers must have a valid North Dakota fishing license. Last year, either a North Dakota or Minnesota license was allowed.
All other regulations regarding fishing these two rivers remain the same. Anglers fishing from a boat or through the ice can possess either a valid North Dakota or Minnesota fishing license. In addition, the daily limit for northern pike caught from the Red or Bois de Sioux remains at three, while the pike limit in the rest of the state is now five.
Anglers should refer to the 2012-14 North Dakota Fishing Guide for additional information.
