legal live baitfish

May 11, 2015

Anglers are reminded that fathead minnows, sticklebacks, and creek chubs are the only legal live baitfish species that can be used in most North Dakota waters.
The only exceptions are the Red and Bois de Sioux rivers where white suckers are allowed, and 23 state waters where it is illegal to use any live baitfish.
North Dakota Game and Fish Department fisheries chief Greg Power said for years the department has worked with the wholesale and retail bait industry to help ensure anglers are buying clean and legal minnows at their local bait shops.
