Paddlefish Tags Online

North Dakota’s paddlefish snagging season opens Sunday, May 1, and one noteworthy regulation change involves the sale and distribution of paddlefish tags.

Paddlefish tags are only available for purchase online at the North Dakota Game and Fish Department’s website,, and during normal business hours at Game and Fish Department offices in Bismarck, Dickinson and Williston.

Snaggers buying tags online should plan accordingly and allow for a few days delivery through the mail.
