Lakes beginning to freeze in Bemidji area
Lakes in the Bemidji area are super cooled and ready to freeze for the winter. Some of the shallow lakes in the area are already frozen, but the ice is not thick enough yet for ice fishing.
More lakes should start to freeze over as soon as cold temperatures and calm winds occur on the same night. The wind is capable of keeping lakes from freezing and also capable of re-opening lakes after they freeze.
