Devils Lake is the number one destination for North American ice anglers. More than 15,000 fishermen head onto the ice with guides each winter. Thousands more travel to north-central North Dakota for their DIY fishing adventures.
Most visitors book fishing and lodging via resorts, motels or guide services where everything is provided including tackle, shelters, fish-finding electronics, fishing tips, bait and on-ice transportation but we have plenty to offer for the do-it-yourselfer as well.
Limits are generous with 20 perch daily; 40 in possession. Pike and walleye limits are five daily and 10 in possession. Seasons never close in North Dakota. The area hotels, resorts and community have the most indoor, heated fish-cleaning stations per capita than any other locale.
This winter experience what the rest of the ice fishing world already knows - ice fishing is one more reason to add Devils Lake to your Bucket List.
