Fishing for largemouth bass, black crappie, walleye, bluegill, yellow perch and northern pike at Lake Metigoshe in North Dakota.

Big bluegill and heavy crappie entice anglers to Lake Metigoshe, a 1,500-acre lake in the north-central part of North Dakota. Much of the 27 miles of shoreline is developed with private homes, yet there is plenty of undeveloped areas for fishing from the bank. The primary fish species in Metigoshe include bass, crappie, walleye, sunfish, perch and pike. Ice fishing for bluegill, crappie and perch is very popular, and a great way to introduce kids to fishing. Four major boat launch ramps, for boating access, are available for public use. The ramps are centrally located and are accessible from either side of the lake. Lake Metigoshe State Park Campground is located on the east side of the lake and includes a boat launch. Lodging, stores and restaurants are all close by the lake.
