Ice Out Update?

I mean, not that it has much bearing on my near term plans, but anyone near the Park got an update on how the ice is doing up there? I've got April 24 in the AO ice out contest and hoping for some sweet sweet bragging rights.

We do not go to the green woods and crystal waters to rough it, we go to smooth it.

Nice. I've got a good feeling about that day.

Re: Ice Out Update?

Spring Lake in Dwight was ice free on April 11th.  From my experience Canoe Lake is typically ice free 7-10 after Spring Lake is.  Given the cooler than normal temperatures this past week has definitely slowed the melt up here but I'm sure the ice will be out by or before opener.  Not that it matters.

Re: Ice Out Update?

   I know Pickerel Lake thawed on the 14th. I was up north this weekend. South river was open this Friday. Heard the loons for the first time this year. Always amazing. For anyone who follows the satellite pics, today there is a great shot. All lakes to the east west and south of the park are open. You can tell where the park is right now with the last of the frozen lakes. Kinda cool.

Re: Ice Out Update?

Can someone post a link to those satellite pictures? I can never remember where to find them.

Re: Ice Out Update?

The latest image shows the ice is off of Radiant and Traverse, but Cedar and Opeongo are still frozen. Image taken yesterday.

  You beat me to it Peek! Great tool isn't it? I use it a lot for viewing the Niagara river in the fall too. Looking at the Algonquin web cam, there are changes to Fork lake now too. Finger are super crossed for May 1st!

Re: Ice Out Update?

It was a blizzard on the FOAP webcam a few minutes ago but now that things have settled you can still see the lake is white - and not with white caps : )  I could be mis-interpreting but looks like ice still holding up that snowfall.

Re: Ice Out Update?

  There were a few lengthy dark spots. But ya totally looks all white now. Won't be long. With this wind we're having too bad it wasn't a little warmer. Would have taken care of it lol

I can't make head or tail out of those pictures of the Great Lakes. The cloud cover looks like it's been total in recent days - all the clouds packed together like that reminds me of hoar frost. )-:

Re: Ice Out Update?

  Checking the pic from yesterday. Looks as though LOTR is pretty much open. I see the park received a dusting too. That doesn't help melt things. Should be good to go for next week.

Re: Ice Out Update?

Reliable sources have told me that Source Lake opened up yesterday and that Cedar was mostly frozen with some open water a couple of days ago.
