Ice out update #6

It’s May 5th and there is sex in the creek!

What you can’t see are the randy mergansers in the creek. Splashing, flapping, calling, chasing…’s romance at it’s finest!
Meanwhile up by the road the water is flowing, except for the middle culvert which is still frozen!
It’s nice to finally see some grass! Still plenty of snow and ice around though.

The weather seems to be getting back to normal…

We have some rain in the forcast for this weekend and Monday. Puts a damper on my outdoor activities but it will get rid of snow and ice. If you’ve been wondering about water levels, they are getting higher and higher.

Last fall this dock had dry ground around it. Now it’s showing some signs of ice movement, and plenty of water.
Looks like we’ll be able to use all the docks this year!
Cabin #5 screened porch under construction. Should be a great view!

Things are progressing….

…but it seems like a late spring is inevitable. Thankfully our early “opener” guests have been able to move their reservations to the following week. While we are disappointed in the way spring is shaping up things will get back on track quickly….and I’m sure the fishing will be well worth waiting for! Stay tuned for more updates……..and if you haven’t put in a guess yet, don’t wait much longer! Send them to Gord…

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.
