DEVILS LAKE, N.D. (AP) - The state Game and Fish Department says

oxygen levels in Devils Lake appear to be fine.

Heavy snow cover on a lake over the winter can lead to reduced

oxygen and cause fish kills.

Fisheries biologist Randy Hiltner says Health Department

officials did oxygen testing on Devils Lake a few weeks ago and

everything checked out fine.

Devils Lake is considered one of the premier walleye fisheries

in the Midwest, if not the country.
