Water Remains Cold Even With Warm Temps

Even though temperatures are well above average across the state, lakes and rivers remain cold. Iowa DNR Conservation Officer Eric Hoffman tells KNIA/KRLS News that people should remember that local bodies of water will take awhile to warm up. He says if you do plan on going boating you should have a life jacket at minimum, or if kayaking, you should have a wet or dry suit.
