Check out all the little lake to the East of Williston. Lots of good fishing. Sorry I can't help on the mighty Mo.

Good spot to shore fish for both walleye and northerns is White Earth Dam and Grano Bridge Crossing on Lake Darling.  Minnow on a jig under a slip bobber @ White Earth or jigging a minnow from the fishing bridge @ Grano Crossing.

Take a kid fishing now and they will return the favor later!

You have moved to a Great fishing area!  Best fishing is by boat.  This time of year jigging with a minnow in the river, slack water of sandbars will produce walleyes.  Next month upper Sakajawea should turn on with same minnow and jig, by june the bottom bouncer and a crawler also great  Tobacco gardens and east to New town.   Go to Scenic sports in Williston they will also help you with tips.  This time of year is a good time to fish from shore for big post spawn Northen Pike.  A big smelt on the bottom with a quick strike rig will produce, fish points on Sakajawea esp if a bigger bay, 20 +lbs are not uncommon.  Wind isnt going to quit, better get use to it! ;D
