Ice-free, at last!

What a sight this morning. The ice has pushed onto the shore but it appears that the lake is ice-free! I'm not sure I'd chance being out there just yet, but we are definitely OK for season opening.

Our bay is ice-free! It won't take long now. We're expecting about 19-22 C for the next few days. Winds will change up from westerly to north westerly to south easterly. Shouldn't be any ice ice left in a few days! Stay posted!

Ice conditions, May 7/12

Hi Friends,

I'm just a little late with the first "Ice Conditions Report".

The truth is, there has been very little to post about the conditions and even less to see in pictures. Today, I walked down to the dock and found our bay on the south end of the lake has become free at the shoreline. A family of ducks have made their way home. As well, you can stand on the dock in the evening and listen to a chorus of gaggling geese to the west. Unusual for them to hang out in our bay but I guess they're just happy to find open water.
With the wind directions expecting to change up a number of times this week and wind speeds climbing for a few days as well, I am anticipating some great changes to the ice conditions by week's end. Of course, I'm no expert but a few days of good seasonal temperatures coupled with the wind can make light work of a little ice.

For those of you still looking for early season bookings, I have some availability for mid-week. Weekend slots are pretty tight but I still have some small spots open. Do not hesitate to call me if you're still looking!

Looking forward to a great fishing season this year. I have heard from many of you that this year is supposed to be one for the record books! I think every year is just that great here!
