I'm predicting late July. I've heard summer is going to be held on a Tuesday this year.

Any day now at valley bottom..... the shacks have been off for over a week now. :D




Good thing I don't live in the Okanagan any more.... Ice? What ice? 8)




But it will be nearly August at the 7000ft level because of the cold winter.....

Took this picture https://www.dropbox.com/s/p6qi0al472su3d6/IMG_3879.JPG when we were trout fishing March 20th (first day of spring), as you can see we are preparing for an early ice out in N/W Ontario. My prediction: May 18th ice out for Red lake, reason: poor ice structure, temps will moderate.

Well, it's finally starting here in southern Ontario. Toronto harbor is now ice free, for those looking to get your floats wet. I'm guessing it'll be a couple weeks before the southern lakes (Scugog, Rice) are open.

still white here in Huntsville. I was snowmobiling today on the lakes and just starting to be a bit of slush where I was. I'd say two more weeks minimum. So, May 1st. for this area and May 10th for Algonquin Park. Trout opener will be through the ice for sure.
