Anglers May Not Bring Live Aquatic Bait into North Dakota


Anglers are reminded that it is illegal to import minnows and other forms of live aquatic bait, such as leeches and frogs, into North Dakota. 

When purchasing live aquatic bait, anglers must buy from a licensed North Dakota retail bait vendor. Bait vendors can properly identify species and ensure all bait is clean of any aquatic nuisance species.

For more information, refer to the  2020-22 North Dakota Fishing Guide , available at license vendors or online at the state Game and Fish Department website, gf.nd.gov.
