Default Red lake, Ontario ice out/Opener

I have a trip planned for the opener this year and I am getting a little nervous about the ice. Do you think it will be off by that time this year???

Marc: You may want to PM Tackleman on that question. He is a resident of that area, and I can think of no better person to ask for a more up to date evaluation.

Relax.

Plenty of time to go and that ice goes off fast once it warms up.

We have been going to Sturgeon for the opener for quit a few years now and twice we have had floating ice chunks on the lake when we got there. The good part was that the big females were in shallow dark water bays and a blast to catch & release but it made for cold fishing. It was a bit touch and go the week prior to leaving wondering if we could get out.

Default No bugs eh!

You can leave the sunscreen at home. The Deep Woods off can be left off the packing list! Pack the long Johns! The last two mid-June trips my ski bib's came in handy!

We've been up the last two years (Perrault Falls area) in mid June and I don't remember it being that bad..I know we were never in shorts and tee shirts buy never in long johns and ski bibs...to my recollection mornings were hooded sweatshirts over a long sleeve tee and a fleece hooded jacket on top..thats the worst I can remember..and on days with wind, the top from the rainsuit over that..stocking caps now and then with neopreme gloves..by 10:00 we were stripping most of it off..

Default 43 at noon

Two years ago, at noon it was cloudy cold windy and 43 degrees one day! Yea we still went out, probably one of the better days fishing!
Even last year the ski bibs came in handy. We were on the water most of the day any way, gear up and fish eh!
