Email News Alerts

As of Wednesday afternoon, the forecast for tomorrow's fishing opener calls for partly cloudy skies and a high of 49 degrees.

Sunday sounds even better with highs of 62. That forecast should only enhance the anticipation for the boatloads of fishermen heading onto the Alexandria area lakes this weekend in search of their first big game fish of the year.
