BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is allowing sport fishing on four national wildlife refuges in northeastern North Dakota.

The Ardoch, Lake Alice, Rose Lake and Silver Lake refuges all are part of the Devils Lake Wetland Management District.

North Dakota’s congressional delegation announced the change. U.S. Rep. Kevin Cramer says hunting and fishing is permitted when those activities are compatible with an individual refuge’s purpose and mission. Hunting is now permitted on 336 wildlife refuges, and fishing on 275 refuges.
