Unsafe Ice conditions on lower Red Lake and north Red Lake


November 19, 2018

From the Red Lake Police Department

Due to unsafe Ice conditions on lower Red Lake and north Red Lake, fishing on either lake is prohibited until the lakes are deemed safe by the Red Lake Conservation Enforcement Department .

Yesterday evening Red Lake Law Enforcement received a report of two fisherman who failed to return home after going fishing on north Red Lake.

Officers responded to the location and discovered the fishermen were stranded on ice that separated from the shoreline and activated search and rescue operations in addition to requesting the assistance of the Bemidji Fire Department.

The two stranded fishermen were located on the lake by search and rescue authorities after midnight on early Sunday morning and treated for hypothermia.

Please keep in mind that the majority of lakes recently froze over and are extremely unsafe and dangerous due to strong winds and varying temperatures leading to life threatening conditions because of weak and shifting ice.

FrThere will public notice when the lake conditions are safe.

Thank you In advance for your cooperation and immediate understanding!
