A look at outdoor-related events coming up around Minnesota.
There was a time as recently as the mid-1980s when North Dakota didn’t have a daily limit on perch.
Fast forward with more waters and limits and the fishing is even better. Coincidence? Probably not, but the return of water had much more to do with the current state of strong fisheries in North Dakota.
The cisco typically is found in relatively deep cold well oxygenated lakes with good deeper water summer habitat (Hypolimnion). Lakes that can support trout and whitefish are usually classified as oligotrophic, which have relatively low levels of nutrients, are typically relatively clear, and have good hypolimnion waters during summer thermal stratification.
