Around Minnesota, winters just aren't as cold as they used to be. DNR climatologist Kenny Blumenfeld produced this graphic showing how Grand Rapids is losing its coldest temperature readings, which are usually collected overnight. The 1930s was something of an anomaly, he said, because the drought years caused colder temperatures. Source: Minnesota DNR

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?
