Muskie stocking adding more trophy opportunities in North Dakota, and pheasant spring crowing counts are up statewide

The North Dakota Game and Fish Department continued its muskie-stocking program this past year, introducing both pure muskies and tiger muskies into three major systems: Lake Audubon, Lake Ashtabula, and the Garrison Diversion Canal Lakes, which include New Johns Lake, Heckers Lake, and East and West Park lakes.
Because muskies aren’t raised at federal hatcheries in North Dakota, the NDG&F sources them from states such as Iowa, South Dakota, and Wyoming.
