I'm out of Fargo, looking for shore access on the river in the Bismarck area on Friday. Thanks for any info.
Missouri River System
Fished for a few hours this afternoon around Bismark. Tried Fox-Island and the Apple Creek rec area - no luck at either place. Windy as heck - perhaps try this evening if the wind dies down.
Fished the Missouri River, started on the rocks on the east side, near the dam. Pitched cranks and jigs but had no luck. Some smelt coming through. Moved down to the downstream campground and tried the same. No luck there either. Was a beautiful day to be out though 3/5/16
Very slow today didn't see many fish caught around Bismarck, Mandan. A lot of boats out enjoying the nice day. Hear that people are catching them, but I think it's fishing tales.
Well the river was a bit off this morning. Three of us ended with 11 and a couple dinks and a sturgeon we tossed back and lost a half dozen as well. They were still hitting but it was vary back and forth with no bites for twenty minutes or so then a flurry of bites then dead again. Biggest problem was they were not vary aggressive in their bits so most were short hits and thus a swing and a miss on the hook set. Over all it was still a good bite just a bite tricky to make work but would say we got over 40 hits in three hours so more then enough to keep a guy interested.
Checked the river south of Bismarck.... Desert boat ramp was in and clear of ice. Rifle range ramp was in and clear of ice. Hazelton ramp was not in and some ice is still blocking the ramp and exits to the main channel. Picture is from the Hazelton ramp.
Went Shore fishing cloise to town Sunday Afternoon caught 3 walleyes 2 14 and 1 15.
It was slow packed up and finished getting ice fishing gear ready. I know people were out this weekend already but I am going to wait till the 1st of Dec.
yuck. hit the tailrace tuesday and the water was so low the pool next to the boatramp was almost dry and what wasn't dry was full of weeds, same thing in front of the concrete chunks, I caught nothing. hiked up the stream looking for salmon but didn't see anything, not even a carp. had to leave because it was too windy to fish, the wind would catch any amount of line. from there I went to turtle creek and caught a 21 in ch northern that I realesed. couldn't go out wendsday because of car troubles.
Hey everyone just looking for some tips on catching anything on the Missouri in Bismark. I'll be staying in Bismark next week for a few days for work and would like to get out and do some shore fishing. Thanks in advance for any tips, I really appreciate it.
Thinking about going out fishing tomorrow off shore north of Bismarck. Any good spots or tips? Please help.!
