Yes, Dorothy, that is open water on Lake Temagami. A week after local chatter reported the lake was closed, it was still open midday, just west of High Rock Island. Steve Battis (who had remained skeptical all week that the lake was closed) passed near the spot and saw steam, confirming it was open.

When he returned about 4:00 p.m., there was no steam visible. Is the lake closed?



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)
