Word from a local on the lake says that there are ice flows on Lake Temagami . Navigation by boat could be dangerous and blocking access to some areas.

Yesterday was a big day. There was still some ice in the North Arm early afternoon. Waiting for confirmation to see if it went out late yesterday with the winds.

Ice filled the channel at Horseshoe Island yesterday, so ice-out will be revised, at least to April 30. First, need to determine when that ice goes.

Ice still sitting at Horseshoe today.

Anyone boating or canoeing up that way can get around through the Lower Narrows behind Deer Island.

Okay, Horseshoe Island ice went out yesterday. So May 1 is Ottertooth's ice-out call.

This is familiar. In 2015 we had rogue ice at Ogama Island that caused us to revise the date. I wish these ice flows would read the rules.
