...UNUSUAL RIVER CONDITIONS AND FLOW FOR JANUARY...


RUNOFF FROM RAIN LAST WEEKEND AND MELTING SNOW HAVE COMBINED TO
PRODUCE SOME UNUSUALLY HIGH RIVERS ACROSS THE SOUTHWESTERN QUARTER
OF NORTH DAKOTA.

CONDITIONS THAT HAVE CROPPED UP OVER THE PAST FEW DAYS INCLUDE ICE
JAMS THAT HAVE CREATED TEMPORARY HIGH WATER ALONG THE LITTLE
MISSOURI RIVER NEAR MEDORA, KNIFE RIVER NEAR HAZEN, CANNONBALL
RIVER, HEART RIVER, AND BEAVER CREEK IN MONTANA. THIS LAST ONE
ALONG BEAVER CREEK HAS NOT YET FULLY WORKED ITS WAY INTO NORTH
DAKOTA. EVEN AS THE WATER FROM UPSTREAM ENTERS NORTH DAKOTA, IT
MAY NOT BE ENOUGH TO BREAK UP THE ICE ON BEAVER CREEK IN GOLDEN
VALLEY COUNTY.

OTHER PROBLEMS OF INTEREST ARE THE RESERVOIRS AND SMALL LAKES THAT
ARE RISING DUE TO INCREASED INFLOW. ANGLERS WISHING TO FISH THESE
BODIES OF WATER SHOULD BE EXTRA CAREFUL AS WARM TEMERATURES AND
RISING WATER RAPIDLY DETERIORATE ICE CONDITIONS NEAR THE SHORE.
ACCESS MAY BE DIFFICULT, IF NOT DANGEROUS. SOME, BUT NOT ALL, OF
THE LAKES THAT THIS IS A CONCERN FOR INCLUDE PATTERSON LAKE NEAR
DICKINSON, LAKE TSCHIDA, CAMELS HUMP, DAVIS DAM, AND OTHER SIMILAR
BODIES OF WATER.
