WOODRUFF - Sport fishing season opens Saturday, May 2, 2015.
Department of Natural Resources wardens want to remind people that although ice is mostly melted on lakes, the water is still very cold.
"The water is still cold. We are only talking high 40s or low 50 degrees for water temperature," said DNR Warden Supervisor Dave Walz. "So some people will be out there in the small craft, which we've had problems with before."
