BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) _ Anglers shouldn't have a problem finding public access points from which to launch a boat on Lakes Sakakawea and Oahe.
Both Missouri River reservoirs are about 10 feet lower than last year. But Bob Frohlich with North Dakota's Game and Fish Department says most of the main recreation areas will have a usable boat ramp.
All but two of the 34 recreation sites on Sakakawea will have a usable ramp. All 12 ramps on the river stretch from Garrison Dam to MacLean Bottoms will be usable. Ramps will be usable at seven of eight recreation areas on Oahe from Hazelton to the South Dakota border.
Frohlich says anglers will have to use low-water ramps in some areas, which he says aren't as good as primary ramps but are still sufficient.
