Devils Lake reportedly thick enough for ice fishing

DEVILS LAKE, N.D. — A Devils Lake resort spokesman says the lake's ice is thick enough for ice fishing if anglers are careful.

Jeff Katzer of Woodland Resorts said the ice at the resort is between 4 and 5 inches thick. He says that's enough to support walking out onto the ice. Ice fishermen should carry a life jacket as a precaution.

The Devils Lake ice isn't sturdy enough for ATVs or other vehicles. Katzer says he's hopeful the ice will be thick enough in a week to allow ATVs to tow ice fishing houses onto the lake.
