Garrison Bay / Pick City Area
Garrison Bay / Pick City Area covers the region east of Douglas Bay and Hazen Bay to the east end of Garrison Bay and west mouth of Sakakawea State Park (Pick City).
Fished today with great weather at Gov. Bay. 2 guys, 4 hours, 8 tipups with smelt for northerns. No flags went. Walking access looks good for a few days and shores were even decent.

Obviously decided to stick around a while and actually fished up in the cove the better part of the morning and did really well, landing 7 more fish with most of them in the 15-18 inch range, a couple smaller and one that
