Historically late ice-outs on some metro lakes


Lake Phalen on Saturday, April 20. The latest recorded ice-out date on the lake was April 21 until this year.

Last year was the earliest statewide ice-out for Minnesota lakes on record. On April 10, 2012 the last lake, Greenwood Lake in Cook County near the Ontario border, was declared ice-free. Most lakes around the Twin Cities were free of ice by mid March when the mercury spiked to a record 80 degrees on St. Patrick’s Day.
This year many anglers traveling to northern Minnesota lakes for the May 11 fishing opener may worry that they will have to pull out the ice auger to reach the abundant walleye, northern pike and sauger.
