Ice out drags on…..

Strong south-west winds have pushed what ice remains over to Strawberry & McColls Island.

Today, the ice is still moving around on the eastern side of Vermilion Bay. This picture does not do a good job of picking up the ice, but the band of black near the far shore is in fact ice. Between Round Island and Canoe Narrows is still looking pretty solid. A change in wind direction would probably finish it off. My criteria for “ice out” is when I can’t see ice… we’re not there yet! I wonder how the trout fishing would be right now…..pretty good I bet!!!

  1. It's just great to see that much water again. I think there's more water in your pictures than we have in the whole state of New Mexico. Hope you'll be on the water soon……Bill

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.
