Waterfowl hunting along the Missouri River and its marshy backwaters is some of the best Nebraska has to offer. There is good white-tailed deer hunting in the bluffs above the river and in the creek bottoms that slice through the district’s grasslands and croplands. Numerous wild turkeys can be found along the river bottoms and wherever there is an abundance of timber. Pheasants and bobwhite quail can be found in the most agricultural areas. The Missouri River bluffs also support an excellent squirrel population.

Anglers in the northeast find exciting fishing action at many small farm ponds. Catfish, buffalo, carp, walleye and much more can be found in the Mighty Missouri River.

The Nebraska Game and Parks Commission www.ngpc.state.ne.us offers a multitude of information including licenses and regulation.

Near Hubbard, Neb. is a 746-acre state recreation area on Kramper Reservoir, a 226-acre lake. Danish Alps includes RV and tent camping, equestrian camping facilities, day use areas, a walking and hiking trail and excellent angling and wildlife watching opportunities.

Kramper Reservoir, a 226-acre lake, was planned with shoreline fishing and boat fishing in mind, and a wide spectrum of aquatic habitat features were incorporated to make this new reservoir suitable for fish to reproduce and grow rapidly. The lake has been stocked with largemouth bass, bluegill, black crappie, walleye and channel catfish. Anglers are reminded that Kramper Lake is a no-wake lake and that live bait fish are not allowed. Boaters are asked to clean, drain and dry their boats to prevent the spread of aquatic invasive species such as zebra mussels. A Nebraska park entry permit is required for each vehicle entering the park.
