Fun fact: North Dakota is an unsung fishing paradise. Where most Americans see “boring” and “flat”, those of us well-versed in the Dakotas know that this isn’t even a little bit true. Did you know, for example, that some of the best fishing in the U.S. can be found here in the Peace Garden State? Yep. Take for instance the Missouri River; whereas most folks across the nation have no clue that it’s a mecca for those who love to fish, those of us who live here know all about it. The best fishing in North Dakota is a well-kept open secret… and the key is the river.
