I always figure on the ice going out sometime in the first week of May. Once it was last week of Apr., once the second week of May, and I've been here 21 years. I'm planning a trip to N.Bay on Mon (dentist), I'll keep you posted. Don't count on getting a vehicle on the ice from here on in. The ice tends to break up first at the shore end of roads due to the shock-wave travelling ahead of vehicles coming off the ice.

Dendrast, I had noticed the road ends seemed to be messed up earlier than other parts of the shore. Another mystery of life revealed.

Still getting on & off at the end of the access rd. A little deep in some places, but still able to support a vehicle. Pretty well getting to the point of 4x4 use strictly.

Environment Ca is predicting 80+% chance of warmer than average wx in the Temagami area in the next 3 months. Maybe ice out will be a little early. Being optimistic, I've planned a Apr 29th trip.

Bush Pilot:
Are you out and about?
Can you fill us in on how things are progressing up there. I was hoping to see water on Sunday May 1, but then it got cold and I am not so sure. But the newest forecast is starting to look better, with higher temperatures.

Are any of the lakes starting to clear out i.e. Lady Evelyn, Makobe, LE River,Temagami? Or is it all still solid?

There are some open areas, but you can turn a corner and the area will be full of ice. Should have some photos posted on the main pages this afternoon.

A tip, Lake Nipissing goes first and it was still covered yesterday.

It's also been raining, which means there are no satellite images to show.

Was told about the same today from Des at Temagami Marine, Wayne..."The ice is pretty much out to your place (Island 30 close to town) but not yet up the lake. There is
a lot of debris floating around and big chunks of ice yet. It should be
clear by the first of next week if this rain keeps up.

Right. Today the wind blew SW. The ice around here retreated to N of Stinking Islands & E of Allen's (formerly Shaw's). The last view I had, it was still in W of Bear Island (eg : off store dock), but I expect that'll be gone tomorrow. It's clear S. of Cayuga Is. and over to Brad Hall's. Govern yourselves accordingly.

I saw the caretaker from Keewaydin today. He got as far as Seal Rock, had to turn back because of ice.

That's him. In such a rush out the door, he didn't take the time to tie on the canoe, so it's skiddin around on the asphalt behind the car, leaving a trail of epoxy shards kicking up on the windshields of passing cars.

Oy... so Ed's off paddlin for, what is it, about a month?

That must be the life; to be able to head out on a trip right after ice-out, and see spring from a canoe.

Anyone else heading out canoeing yet?

Just so everyone can appreciate dendrast's comment, which made me laugh, he is a wood-canvas canoe builder/rebuilder on Garden Island. A cedar-canvas man.
