Fishing is allowed on most waterfowl production areas within the Wetland Management District; however, fishing opportunities are limited as the majority of wetlands on Waterfowl Production Areas are shallow and do not support fish populations.
Fishing is not permitted on Hart, Nelson, Vold and Kellys Slough Waterfowl Production Areas in Grand Forks County.
NEW FOR 2015! Fishing opportunities are available at Ardoch National Wildlife Refuge, Lake Alice National Wildlife Refuge, Rose Lake National Widlife Refuge and Silver Lake National Wildlife Refuge.
