Unsafe ice conditions in Lake Superior bay

As of Wednesday, February 7, the public is asked to exercise caution and refrain from engaging in ice fishing activities on Superior Bay adjacent to Park Point.

According to the Duluth Fire Department, the recent warm temperatures have led to large cracks and fissures forming in the ice on the bay. This includes open water areas, making conditions unsafe for recreational activities such as ice fishing.

The public should stay off the ice until conditions for ice recreation improve. The Duluth Fire Department would like to remind everyone that wind conditions play an important factor in ice safety on large bodies of water.
