Remove Permanent Fish Houses
State law requires permanent fish houses to be removed from North Dakota waters by midnight March 15.
Nancy Boldt, water safety coordinator for the state Game and Fish Department, said anglers should exercise caution because mild weather conditions this winter have resulted in unstable ice conditions in many areas of the state.
“It is always important to check ice thickness, but even more so this year because of the unseasonably mild temperatures over the past two months,” Boldt said. “In addition, warm temperatures with a high sun will rapidly deteriorate ice conditions this time of the year.”
Fish houses may be used after March 15 if they are removed daily.
