Heavy snow limits travel on area lakes
Most lakes in the Bemidji area are covered with at least 16 inches of snow and deeper drifts can be found around fish houses and on the windward side of the lakes.
The ice thickness varies greatly because of the deep snow. Some areas have ice as thin as eight inches while other areas have more than 16 inches of ice.
