We don’t know. That’s the answer. As of Monday most lakes averaged somewhere between 15 and 18 inches of ice. It has begun to retreat from the shoreline, however it is still thick enough to keep travel by canoe at a standstill.
Some of the rivers have begun to open up as is evidenced by these two videos that Drew Brockett, our Outfitting Manager took along the North Shore of Lake Superior. Fueled by melt waters, streams and rivers are flowing fast and deep. Some of the wetlands have overcome back country roads and culverts causing flooding.
Currently this is the case with the road that leads to the Mudro Entry Point Boundary Waters Entry Point. For more information on that closure call us at 1-800-223-6565. Currently there are no lakes that are open to our knowledge. We will keep you posted.
