In 2013, the governor's fishing opener in Park Rapids actually had to be moved onto a river because Fish Hook Lake was still iced over on May 11. Mille Lacs Lake, the state's best-known walleye fishery, wasn't open water until May 16 - just 11 days before Memorial Day that year. Mille Lacs has only had ice in the second week of May three times in the DNR records that date back almost 70 years, in 1950, 1975 and 2013. The median date for Mille Lacs in state records has been April 25.
Will the late ice-out hurt walleye fishing this year?

Accelerating glacial melt in the Andes caused by climate change has set off a gold rush downstream, but as the ice vanishes, the vast farms below may do the same. (Tomas Munita/The New York Times)

An aerial view of the edge of the Ross Ice Shelf, in Antarctica, in 2017. Scientists are racing to understand what is happening to the ice shelf as the planet warms around it. They are also trying to measure the role of human-caused climate change in weakening other parts of the West Antarctic ice sheet, and to fathom how damaging warming seas and changing wind patterns might ultimately prove to be.
