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.

If you’re looking for an outstanding vacation spot for the serious fisherman or a family get away you should consider Vermillion Bay Lodge on Eagle Lake, Ontario Canada. We have stayed at many lake resorts over the years, but none offer the simple pleasures of this one. The lake is large enough and holds enough fish for the most adventuresome fisherman and yet easy for local family fishing for young children. Bring your own boat or use one of the aluminum boats (20 hp) at the lodge. Boat dockage is well protected from the wind and allows easy access to the water.

What sets this lodge apart from most others is it is always clean, well kept with lots to do including paddle boats canoes, bon fires in the evenings and a just plain friendly atmosphere.
