DEAN’S LIST. The NDG&F revisits its periodic statewide fishing report card, and the grades are good throughout the state for habitat, waters and access. Check it out as part of the latest installment of the agency’s online magazine.
STEADY GOING. The melt will continue as temperatures find their way into the 40s and 50s for the rest of the week. Lows will stay mostly above freezing as well as snow melts and spring takes hold.
