BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota’s Game and Fish Department is urging winter anglers to consider removing their fish houses early in areas of the state where ice conditions have started to deteriorate.

Officials say early removal should be given consideration especially in the southern and western regions.

State law requires permanent fish houses to be removed from North Dakota waters by midnight March 15. Fish houses may be used after that date if they’re removed daily.

Anglers are advised to be wary of unstable ice conditions due to warm weather. Officials say ice conditions can vary from region to region, between lakes in the same region, and even on the same lake.
