RIVERDALE, N.D. (AP) - Lake Sakakawea is officially ice-free.

The Minot Daily News reports that the call by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers came Wednesday. It’s the fourth-latest declaration in the history of the reservoir created by Garrison Dam. That’s due to an unusually cold spring.

The lake is a popular fishery, and anglers pay attention to the ice-free declaration because it means the danger of shifting ice has passed for boats and docks.
