Early in December 25 years ago, the Herald carried a warning for anglers to beware of thin ice. Thin and dangerous ice still covered many lakes and rivers of North Dakota and Minnesota, said a story by Kevin Grinde of the Herald.
The long winter and tardy spring of 2013 disrupted a lot of outdoor activities. The weather also influenced North Dakota wildlife, particularly upland game birds, which experienced a relatively poor reproduction year that state Game and Fish Department biologists partly attributed to a delayed start to the nesting season and cool, wet weather early on when nesting did start.
Open water fishing has all but come to an end, and many of the bays had ice after the cold snap early this week. There could be a reprieve with the warm-up of the past couple of days, but that likely will be short-lived.
