Morning broke over Green Lake 5:30 a.m. Saturday with an orange glow silhouetting an angler and his boat just off Saulsbury Beach at Spicer. A great bite and stunning spring weather were too much to expect in a single weekend. The fishing start seemed slow up and down Kandiyohi County on Saturday. Tribune photo by Rand Middleton

A bright sun hovered over calm waters and the mercury nudged 70.

Sunburn, not hypothermia, was the primary danger to anglers who swarmed to the prairie lakes.
