Anglers reminded that unoccupied fish houses on North Dakota waters must be able to float


BISMARCK, North Dakota — State wildlife officials are reminding winter anglers in North Dakota that any fish house left unoccupied on state waters must be made out of materials that will allow it to float.

The Game and Fish Department says a lot of anglers ask whether campers qualify as legal fish houses. Officials say the must-be-able-to-float rule still applies.

Any structure that doesn't float must be removed when the angler leaves the ice. Unoccupied fish houses left on the ice must have the owner's name and either address or telephone number displayed on the outside in characters at least 3 inches high.

Other fish house regulations can be found at .
