...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.

...ABNORMAL RUNOFF FROM RECENT RAINFALL...

RELATIVELY LIGHT RAINS...BETWEEN A FEW HUNDREDTHS OF AN INCH TO
NEAR ONE-HALF INCH FELL ACROSS THE SOUTHWESTERN QUARTER OF THE
STATE THIS PAST WEEKEND. THIS MODEST RAINFALL HAS PRODUCED
UNUSUALLY HIGH AMOUNTS OF RUNOFF. SOME STREAMS REMAIN AT LEVELS
WELL ABOVE NORMAL FOR THIS TIME OF YEAR. THE AFFECTED STREAMS
INCLUDE BUT ARE NOT LIMITED TO...THE KNIFE RIVER...HEART RIVER...
CANNONBALL RIVER...BEAVER CREEK NEAR LINTON...AND THE LITTLE
MISSOURI RIVER. WHILE NO REPORTS OF SIGNIFICANT FLOODING HAVE BEEN
RECEIVED...SEVERAL REPORTS OF MINOR ICE JAMS INDICATE THAT ICE IS
MOVING AT SOME LOCATIONS AND IT IS LIKELY THIS WILL CONTINUE UNTIL
LATE IN THE WEEK.

NOT ONLY ARE SMALL RIVERS AND STREAMS RUNNING HIGH...BUT SEVERAL
RESERVOIRS ARE RISING IN RESPONSE TO INCREASED INFLOW. SHORELINE
CONDITIONS AS RESERVOIR AND RIVER LEVELS RISE DETERIORATE AND CAN
POSE A SIGNIFICANT HAZARD FOR ACCESS. ANGLERS ARE URGED TO
CAREFULLY CHECK THE ICE BEFORE VENTURING OUT WITH A VEHICLE.

NEAR ONE-HALF INCH OF WATER THAT FELL ACROSS THE SOUTHWESTERN
QUARTER OF THE STATE...HAS PRODUCED UNUSUALLY HIGH AMOUNTS OF
RUNOFF. SOME STREAMS THAT ARE FLOWING AT MUCH ABOVE NORMAL FOR

RIVER...HEART RIVER...CANNONBALL RIVER...AND BEAVER CREEK NEAR
LINTON. WHILE NO REPORTS OF FLOODING HAVE BEEN RECEIVED...IT IS
POSSIBLE THAT UNSTABLE ICE WILL SHIFT AND CREATE EVEN HIGHER WATER
THIS WEEK.

NOT ONLY ARE SMALL RIVERS AND STREAMS RUNNING HIGH...BUT SEVERAL
RESERVOIRS ARE RISING IN RESPONSE TO INCREASED INFLOW. SHORELINE
CONDITIONS AS RESERVOIR AND RIVER LEVELS RISE WILL DETERIORATE AND
CAN POSE A SIGNIFICANT HAZARD FOR ACCESS. ANGLERS ARE URGED TO
