WINNIPEG - The provincial government is warning Manitobans to stay off rivers and other bodies of water due to the risk of weak ice.
Recent warm weather has led to a quick melt, and rivers are on the rise with weak spots developing.
While some regions of the province may still have thick ice, Manitoba Conservation is warning all ice-fishers that their shelters should be off the Red River from Lockport to Selkirk.
Ice fishers in The Pas and surrounding area should remove their shelters from the Saskatchewan River well ahead of the April 15 deadline since unseasonably warm temperatures could make shelter removal difficult and possibly dangerous, officials said.
