This was the view when we woke up last Wednesday morning:
It just screams spring, doesn’t it? Anywho…
Despite the picture above we can tell you the ice is melting. We’re pegging the ice out date on Parker Lake as May 16th. We are still waiting on Red Lake. The bay where the dock is below the falls is open as well as the south narrows between camp and the landing. There are a few other spotty openings too. As long as the forecast holds up for improved temps with some sun, rain, & wind we expect the ice to be out on Red within the next 2-3 days.
The picture below is from out on the point over looking Red Lake on May 14th.
As soon as the ice melts we can start tracking down some fish for the 2014 season!
