Lake of the woods ice patrol has up to date coverage of the Kenora area and into Manitoba. Most of the trout lakes are still fully covered but everywhere else seems to be opening up quickly.

I'm up in Red Lake. Ice is about 20 feet out in most places but in some still to the shore. Lots of smaller lakes around here are clear. The place where Lac seul is in Balmerton is all open. cedar lake on the way up here before ear falls is about 100 feet out. That being said its hot today and is only supposed to get warmer through the week. Most of the places are still all locked up and not a sign of anyone. Going to Have to stick around a bit longer to wait for some of the operators to start getting things ready.

I had word from Northern MB that the ice is still thick but looks like it's going to melt quickly with this warm weather

I was around Dryden today, most lakes were clear but a couple of the large lakes still had ice.

Lac Seul in Ear Falls is going out fast. 20 fee the last day and there are pools starting to form out in the distance. Should go quick.
