The ice on Banks Lake could "could rapidly change without warning" as the Bureau of Reclamation began pumping water into the lake on Friday, Feb. 17.
A similar warning applies for those fishing at Potholes Reservoir.
The most popular spot for ice fishing in the local area may well be the area near North Dam where the feeder canal brings in water from deep in Lake Roosevelt.
