(PHoto by" Richard Volesky) Below: Ruthann Zielsdorf goes kayaking at the Zielsdorf farm about 2 miles north of Beach on May 12. Jim Zielsdorf said that behind his house is a large area of wetlands that floods. He said his grandfather came here in 1909 and called the spot Lake Pippen after the lake of the same name on the Minnesota-Wisconsin border. In later years, they just called it the Flat. He said he was able to seed it last year and it hasn't been this full since 1979 when it didn't dry up until August. The deepest spots were about 30 inches and the shallowest was about 18 inches deep. "The ducks were surprised to have company," said Jim Zielsdorf.

The 2010-12 fishing proclama- tion allows for the Game and Fish Department director to close the snagging season early if it appears more than 1.000 paddlefish will be harvested. If the season had remained open through the intend- ed closing date of May 31. the har- vest cap of 1.000 fish would have been exceeded substantially, put- ting additional pressure on the existing population. An additional snag-and-release season will run for a seven-day period from Wednesday, May 18 lie II  II,,ml %,,I 1%.J %,,D J new snaggers, existing paddlefish tag vendors still have tags avail- able for sale during this additional snag-and-release season.

Effective Wednesday, May 18 snag-and-release is legal only in that area of the Missouri River starting on the north shore from the Confluence boat ramp then east (downstream) one-half mile. and that area of the Missouri River starting on the south shore from the Confluence with the Yellowstone River then east Idownstream) one- half mile. Both areas have bound- ary signs. Paddlefish snaggers with an unused paddlefish tag can continue snagging, but must release all fish immediately. Snaggers who aIready used their tag on a harvest- ed paddlefish are not allowed to participate in the additional snag- and-release period.
