Paddlefishing season opens at the confluence May 2

Paddlefishing season opens at the confluence May 2
The Missouri-Yellowstone Confluence Interpretive Center near Williston will celebrate the opening of the paddlefish season (May 1) at the Confluence on Saturday with special opportunities for anglers and others.
The special celebration will include two presentations by Fred Ryckman, the Northwest District Fisheries supervisor for the North Dakota Game and Fish Department. Ryckman will deliver his presentations at 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. CDT and will discuss numerous aspects related to the paddlefish. This discussion will be interesting to all and helpful for the anglers. These presentations will be delivered in the Missouri-Yellowstone Confluence Interpretive Center.
Additionally, the Confluence Center will offer for sale a limited number of one-of-a-kind hats and long-sleeve T-shirts that celebrate paddlefishing at the confluence. Confluence Center staff will also distribute a free paddlefish cookbook to visitors (while supplies last).
