Minot and the surrounding area has a reputation among outdoor adventurers that is legendary, from world-class walleye and perch fishing to unbeatable upland game, waterfowl and big game. We are right along one of North America’s primary corridors for waterfowl migration, making this one of the nation’s best places to hunt Canada Geese and Snow Geese. Minot is also located near plenty of stocked fisheries including Sakakawea, one of America’s largest man-made reservoirs and walleye angling hot spots.

In Minot, two fishing piers are located at Roosevelt Park and one each at Riverside Park, the Water Treatment Plant and near the new Jack Hoeven Baseball Complex.
