BISMARCK – Organizers planning fishing tournaments in North Dakota, including ice fishing contests this winter, must submit an application, along with fishing tournament regulations, to the North Dakota Game and Fish Department at least 30 days before the start of the event.

The 30-day advance notice allows for review by agency staff to ensure the proposed tournament will not have negative biological consequences or conflicts with other proposed tournaments for the same location and/or time.

Hunters are surveyed about their hunting activity because understanding how many animals were removed from the population is an important ecological piece of information.

Fishing tournaments may not occur without first obtaining a valid permit from the department.
