Here is the sat image from today covering western Ontario. The western areas have a lot of open water however the north and east have quite a bit of snow cover and a majority of the lakes still have ice cover.

Default Remi - AWO

I spoke with Remi yesterday who said there was a foot of snow at Nakina and a lot of local ice. He thought it would be at least a week till ice out.

Default Ice out timing

Curious about why some lakes are so ice covered and others pretty much clear. Do lakes follow about the same pattern every year? Is it because of flow, water color and depth?

Open water seems early this year. Water low, too?

How much does an early ice out effect spawning areas and timing of movements throughout the summer? I can't imagine the fish care, but follow water temperatures and maybe day length?

I've never paid much attention to the "annual ice out threads", but with several posting pictures it has my attention even though we never go early.

Thanks for the pictures. They are pretty interesting.

Thanks Jason, I am supposed to be in the air on the 20th so if you are in the area and could post when the ice is out that would be great!

I think depth and flow are major factors. But I'm not totally sure because Anishinabi lake is over 200 feet deep in places and had a fair bit of ice still but Pakwash lake is only 50ish feet and also had a lot of ice left.
Must be a difference in flow between the two because they are very close to each other.
