She's warming up. Here's a link to the Sioux Lookout weather. For our fishing buddies in the USA an easy way to convert celsius to farenheit is double the celcius figure and add 28. You will be within a degree of the actual farenheight temp. http://weatheroffice.gc.ca/city/page..._metric_e.html

I'm 53 and this is the warmest shortest winter I have ever seen.
The snow is gone here in Winnipeg.
I hope to have a boat on LOTW in a 2-3 week if this keeps up.
The earliest I have ever been on the lake is April 20.

I am guessing its going to be a record year for ice out in my area and all the lakes within 2 hrs of the border. We only have 12"-18" of ice right now on Lower Manitou Lake with no snow cover at all on the ice. We have 1"-5" of standing water, once the ice pops and the sun and rain hit the ice it will be gone in no time. Our record was April 13 in 2010 and we are quite a bit ahead of that the way it looks. I am guessing April 5-8 range if the forecast doesn't change. Here are the highs for the next 9 days in Fort Frances 71,70,71,65,58,61,50,49,55 with rain 3 out of the 9 days. It hit 71 today, My yard is totally snow free and on Tuesday I couldn't see any grass.

If you are still going on the ice, be careful.

Stay off the ice now.

For the most part, NW Ontario ice season is done.

Don`t be silly people.

The boys have started to pull shacks off of LDML the last couple of days, trucks are not going on the ice only quads and sleds, it's going to be a tough pull for some guys with monster shacks.

Default A question for NW Ontario guys...

Are the water levels on the lakes back to normal? Did you get enough snow over the winter? The reason I ask is, when I was at Pickerel Arm Camp the 1st week os Sept., the lake was very low. I've been up there 20 times and have not seen it that low. Will the lakes be closer to normal this spring?
