Temperatures in the mid 30s have melted snow in the area and put a stop to ice development on Devils Lake. The ice isn't thinning, it's still about four inches thick in part of Devils Lake, but it's not getting any thicker.

There are also several areas of open water throughout the lake. The ice does gets a chance to firm up at night which helps prevent significant erosion. Fishing guides recommend waiting a couple days to venture onto the ice to give it a chance to firm up during colder temperatures.
