The progression of the Eagle Lake ice out continues. As it melts back from shore and turns black one can only speculate what will eventually cause it to leave. A slow melt with warming temperatures? A quick demise with strong winds or rain? Your guess is as good as mine!
What happens after the Eagle Lake ice out?
One observation. Water levels are quite high and things are looking good for some great fishing opening week. Access into Clearwater Lake and other portage lakes should be easy. Once again the MNR has asked Vermilion Bay Lodge to catch some lake trout from Eagle Lake for their tagging studies. A tough job, but someone has to do it!
