The only visible water is two common late closings on Temagami, our benchmark lake: west side of Cattle and south of Sand Point.

With persistent sub 20 C temperatures in the forecast, we are on the cusp of freeze-up. (Timiskaming and Wanapitei will come later.)


Black open water or thin, clear ice
Dull/ dark blue thin ice with little or no snow cover
Bright turquoise thick ice, snow-covered ice or snow on unforested land  (e.g. clearcuts, farmland)
