trenton lake-crappie and pike(others also but morst likely cath those), Blacktail dam north of williston, the little muddy river runs right through williston- pike are thick in there, Missouri is almost always good for catfish, walleye sauger really depends on water conditions/clarity when you get here.

I dont go around guessing cup sizes either I just know a nice rack when I see one.

Agreed with Double, Trenton Lake is a good time.  Caught some good sized pike along with a slab crappie there this winter.

Epping-Springbrook Dam can be good at times too.

Kettle Lake is about 30 miles north.  I've never had luck there but guys catch perch and trout there.

 I don’t want to kill the animal, but I do want to warn it, and say “hey, I think you’re pretty neat, but I respect your distance.” There’s bears out here, there’s mountain cougars, and biting goats.
