So far our 'official' (so long as the weather co-operates) opening date for the RV sites is April 10. We have been receiving lots of phone calls from eager fishermen who are just itching to get out fishing, and the number one question on everyone's mind right now is, 'When will the ice be off the lake?'
I just checked Environment Canada's website, and this is their forcast for the next few days:
Tonight: Cloudy. A few showers beginning this evening. Low plus 5.
Friday: Cloudy with 60 percent chance of showers. High 12.
Friday night: Cloudy periods. Becoming cloudy near midnight. Low plus 3.
Saturday: Cloudy. High 12.
Sunday: Cloudy with 30 percent chance of showers. Low plus 5. High 10.
Monday: Cloudy with 40 percent chance of showers. Low zero. High 9.
Tuesday: Cloudy. Low minus 1. High 10.
Wednesday: A mix of sun and cloud. Low minus 2. High 10.
My guess is that with the rain and warmer evening temperatures that the ice on Dragon Lake will not be long for this world.
Keep an eye on our webcam to see the ice disapear from your favourite fishing spot. Who knows, maybe you'll even see a trout jump in the next few weeks!
