A LOOK AHEAD. Coming off yesterday’s cold front, we’ll see a warming trend set up over the next few days. Things should be right for the Governor’s Cup on Lake Sakakawea this weekend, and prefishing is in full swing. We talk about that and where we sit in today’s Three Things.

GOING, GOING. Drought conditions have subsided in the state, with just the slightest remnant in north central ND reminding us of what we endured last summer. A solid set of recent rains have helped end the dry stretch, with more than two times the normal amount for the last 90 days in the southwest helping out.
GONE. The chance for rain this week will be fairly minimal, though the occasional storm or shower could pop up on Wednesday or Thursday as things warm. Plan your fishing trips accordingly, but don’t count on a wash out.
GUV’NUH! The 43rd annual Governor’s Cup will be taking place on Lake Sakakawea this weekend, based out of Garrison, ND, with hundreds of anglers turning out for the region’s premier walleye tournament.
