Warm weather threatens eelpout festival

The Cass County Sheriff’s Office is restricting traffic on Leech Lake during the 38th annual International Eelpout Festival in Walker because of unseasonably warm February weather.

Grace Pastoor of the Forum News Service:

Citing safety concerns, the sheriff’s office issued a news release Monday stating that most vehicle traffic will not be allowed on the bay during the festival because of unseasonably warm temperatures and the large number of vehicles. Shortly afterward, festival organizer Jared Olson penned and distributed a letter objecting to the vehicle restrictions.
