ND state officials urge anglers to remove ice houses on frozen waters before it becomes dangerous

(Bismarck, ND) — North Dakota Game and Fish is recommending anglers to remove their ice fishing houses early this year. 

Ice on lake across the state is thinning already. The department says removing the ice houses once the ice becomes even thinner could be more difficult or dangerous. 

“Given the current long-range weather forecast predicting temperatures well above normal, coupled with a marginal icepack in areas of the state, removing a fish house can be difficult or dangerous.It’s important to check ice thickness, especially this time of year. Ice conditions can vary from region to region, between lakes in the same region, and even on the same lake.”
