Thick ice sits on lakes as fishing opener approaches

Email

Leech Lake is a walleye haven and the third largest lake entirely in the boundary of Minnesota, and this year anglers on Leech and lakes near Pine River could still be wetting their fishing opener lines May 11 through holes in the ice.

Last year, Leech Lake set a record for its early ice-off date of April 2. The State Climatology Office records the average ice-out date as April 27.
