Eagle Lake ice update…


Rain and wind has taken it’s toll on the Eagle Lake ice.  The gulls may have had their nesting spots move location after piles of ice begin to push up on their rock.  They will have to tough it out….

Spring melt on Vermilion Bay
An afternoon west wind has shifted the ice pack.

Winds have shifted in the afternoon and so has the Eagle Lake ice!  Right now about 50 % of Vermilion Bay is ice covered.  From this point on things can change rapidly.  Stay tuned!

When will the Eagle Lake ice be gone?

The ice out competition at Vermilion Bay Lodge is based on the date that ice is no longer visible floating on the bay.  Several people are in the running for guessing the correct date…….you know who you are!

Be ready for the final Eagle Lake ice update, coming soon!

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.
