BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota’s Game and Fish Department says the state’s paddlefish snagging season will open Thursday.

The season is scheduled to run through the end of May. State wildlife officials, however, can end the season early to protect the fish population if it appears too many paddlefish will be caught. That has happened several times in recent years.

Snagging is legal in all areas of the Yellowstone River in North Dakota, and in part of the area of the Missouri River between the U.S. Highway 85 bridge and the Montana border.

The Game and Fish Department says Sundays, Mondays and Thursdays during the season are catch-and-release days. Other days are catch-and-keep days.
