Tuesday, June 3, 2014

The North Dakota Game and Fish Department has removed the open fire ban on the Oahe Wildlife Management Area effective immediately. However, the area still falls under any burn restrictions implemented by Morton and Burleigh counties.

Open fires, including campfires, were prohibited this spring on Game and Fish managed property south of Bismarck and Mandan along both sides of the Missouri River.

Oahe WMA covers more than 16,000 acres along Lake Oahe south of Bismarck-Mandan, in portions of Burleigh, Emmons and Morton counties.
