Daily Edge for Tue 8/3 – Cooler Stuff

GUSTY.  The post-front wind will start out the drying process, even if there isn’t much sun.  We look ahead to improvements in the back half of the week, the back half of the tournament season on ND waters and some shots from Alaska in our Outdoors Roundup.

OUTDOORS ROUNDUP:

 

MAKE IT TO MID-WEEK.  The ship rights itself on Wednesday as temps in the upper 70s return headed into the weekend and winds taper off.  Though the conditions will feel more like early September than the dog days of August.  Bright side? Your A/C bill should be less.

 

TOURN OUT THE LIGHTS.  Seven tournaments are slated for the mid-month weekend, with the big one being the Devils Lake CVB/Cabela’s Masters Walleye Circuit event out of Graham’s Island. After that events taper off into fall, with just a smattering in September.

 

NORTH TO ALASKA.  Some great photos by FWS employee Lisa Hupp of wildlife in Alaska are featured on the agency’s page this week. From a blooming spring to shots in winter of various wildlife and scenic places, it captures the spirit of the far north.
