Eagle Lake Ice Out……..Update #1

Incremental changes are happening to the landscape, and to Vermilion Bay on Eagle Lake. It has been a long winter but things are turning around.

I decided to throw in a few shots of the creek and road culvert to help give you a sense of the “big melt“. A bit of current beginning to show up as things heat up a bit.

A few days later and it is not looking a lot different…..or is it? Where is Waldo?

More current though……..and less ice at the culvert. Hmmm…..?

A quick walk out to the Gull Rock reveals a healthy flock of gulls showing their displeasure at the hounds. I thought the ice seemed to be changing quite rapidly…

This photo shows the power of the April sunshine. This leaf was sunk down about six inches into the ice due to it’s ability to attract solar energy. So, are you quietly shaking your head over your ice out guess? Predictions are for some substantial rain over this weekend…..still plenty of time to formulate a guess if you haven’t already done so.

This is a first class resort located on Vermillion Bay on Eagle Lake. The cabins are very clean and well kept. The boats are new with new motors and are in great shape. The owner will also clean your fish for you after your day on the water. Make no mistake the fishing on Eagle Lake is world class.

The Lodge is owned by Gord and Susanne Bastable who will make you feel welcome and before you know it you feel like family. They are the best of hosts. The atmosphere is low key and laid back leading to a great vacation.

This is my 19th year of enjoying the hospitality of the lodge and i can’t think of going anywhere else on Eagle Lake.
