Sheriff Kuznia from the Pennington County Sheriff’s Office wants all residents to stay off both the Thief River and the Red Lake River. Increased flow from Red Lake and continues release from the Agassiz impound combined with warm temperatures have made both rivers very dangerous. The snowmobile access signs have been removed and both the 3rd Street and 8th Street access points have been blocked. Stay off both rivers for your own safety and please prevent children and pets from accessing either river too. Rescue of anyone who goes through the very thin ice would be impossible.
