SPRING(ISH?) While today’s cold temps won’t have you thinking hot thoughts, tomorrow’s southern breezes will bring the warm up and the masses of snow geese into the state. We follow the migration, check out the fishing reports and look ahead in today’s Three Things.

SNOWS COMING. The DU migration tracker shows large numbers of the main migration of light geese coming into southeastern North Dakota and northeastern South Dakota.
DIG IN. There’s a ton of great fishing info in the latest installment of North Dakota Outdoors magazine, issued by the NDG&F. The issue includes the current status of over 400 lakes and what swims in them.
DULL WARMTH. Forecasts keep cutting back on how hot the warm-up will be this weekend, where once we were eyeing 70, it’s looking more like the low 60s will be the highs on Friday and Saturday. Still warm, but don’t break out the board shorts just yet!
