JAMESTOWN, N.D. (NewsDakota.com) – While Jamestown and Pipestem Reservoir access remains restricted for the rest of winter, the North Dakota Game & Fish Department encourages anglers to scout for some new places with their updated contour maps.

Game & Fish Wildlife Biologist Doug Leier says they’ll always encourage people to get outdoors, but to do so safely.

Several contour lake maps have been updated with greater detail and quality and are now available. These include several area waters such as Kidder County; Lake LaMoure, LaMoure County; Dry Lake, McIntosh County; Crooked Lake, and more.
