FIFTH FRIDAY! It’s the final Friday of March, a rare five-Friday month, so celebrate the unique day with some time outdoors. It’ll be a bit breezy, but temps will climb near 50 adding some melt and drying things out with the wind. We cover some favorite spring topics in today’s Three Things.

ON THE MOVE. The snow goose migration is on, and birds will soon be filling the ND skies. Keep track of where they are, how quick they’re moving and when they’ll be here (and gone) with DU’s migration tracker map; and keep your eyes to the skies for this sign of spring!
SPRING PREVIEW. The NDG&F continues its spring fishing preview series with overviews of the Southeast and North Central fisheries districts. The second installment covers options in both areas from walleyes and pike to panfish.
NOTHERN EXPOSURE. As ice gives way and waters begin to warm, remember to look north. The northernmost shorelines, bays, shallows and coves will draw fish to likely spawning areas first, as the sun warms those places with the most direct sunlight for longer periods this time of year.
