Unoccupied fish houses in North Dakota must be removed from all waters beginning Monday, March 15, until ice-out, the Game and Fish Department said this week in a reminder to anglers.

Fish houses may be used after March 15 if they are removed daily.

Anglers should use caution while accessing area lakes because mild weather conditions can quickly result in unstable ice conditions that can make removing a fish house with a vehicle difficult or dangerous. Ice conditions can vary from region to region, between lakes in the same region and even on the same lake.
