Anglers May Not Bring Aquatic Bait into North Dakota

Share
Monday, July 7, 2014

Anglers are reminded that it is illegal to import all forms of live aquatic bait into North Dakota. This includes minnows, suckers, leeches, waterdogs (salamanders) and frogs.

Anglers should buy bait from a licensed North Dakota retail bait vendor. Bait vendors can properly identify species and have taken steps to ensure all bait is clean of any aquatic nuisance species.

For more information, refer to the 2014-16 North Dakota Fishing Guide, available at license vendors or online at the State Game and Fish Department website, gf.nd.gov.
