Maine Fish and Wildlife have warned local ice fishers to be careful now that warmer weather is upon is. With Spring approaching, authorities say that the ice is becoming thinner and that going out on the ice will become more and more risky. They added however, that in the northern part of the state, and areas where there is still a lot of snow, that there should be a few more weeks left of ice fishing season.
The official season was extended from March 31 to April 21 in northern Maine.
