November 21, 2017 – Central ND has some ice, but “good” safe ice is still to come. My suggestion – wait until the next spell of cold nights to make more ice and have a good 5-8″ of ice to walk on. My son and I checked some local ice conditions close to Valley City and found unsafe ice in most locations. The warming weather trend will keep it unsafe for the next week or two, but hopes for some good ice in early December looks promising? Till then, be safe, enjoy some hunting, and call me to schedule some winter fishing!
