Want to try your hand at ice fishing or maybe you just want to ice fish before you get your license in the state.

You're in luck! The free ice fishing weekend is coming up December 31st through January 1, 2017. Free means free!

Residents of North Dakota can ice fish without a license but all other ice fishing rules and regulations apply.

If you want to darkhouse spearfish during the free weekend, you must register with the ND Game and Fish. You can register and get complete details here.
