Green Lake in Spicer, Minn., still waiting on ice-out record


SPICER -- A new record for a late ice-out on Green Lake is sure to be set.

The record to be beat is a May 7 ice-out recorded in 1951.

There was too much ice on the lake Wednesday to qualify for the ranking of ice free, according to those who keep an eye on the matter.

There was still a significant amount of ice on the northeast side of the lake, noted Brad Carlson, with the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources fisheries staff in Spicer.
