These are good times for perch anglers on Devils Lake if results from recent Game and Fish Department population surveys are any indication. There’s a lot of young perch coming down the pike — providing they can get past the pike, walleyes and any other hungry mouths that might want to gobble them up.
Even though results from this summer’s bighorn sheep survey indicated the population in western North Dakota remains steady, state Game and Fish Department biologists are concerned about a significant decline in the number of adult rams.
You might say fish tales have a way of “latching on” to Bridgie Hansen.
It all started last July 29, when Hansen, of Grand Forks, was fishing Devils Lake with her husband, Glenn, and grandson, Evan Hansen, of Shakopee, Minn., who was 6 years old at the time.
Tracy Wicken was looking to buy a gift for her mother last fall when she came across a two-day trip to Ballard’s Resort on Lake of the Woods at a fundraiser for the Northern Lights Council of the Boy Scouts of America.
The North Dakota Game and Fish Department’s annual spring breeding duck survey showed an index of 3.9 million birds, down 17 percent from last year but still 73 percent above the long-term average (1948-2012).
Recently a friend asked me how I see fishing in the future.
Since my approach to fishing probably fits more in 1983 than 2013, and for sure what fishing may be like in 2033, I really struggled to envision the way fishing would look years from now.
