Canoe trip this weekend? Maybe....

I received an e-mail from a reader of this ice report, wondering if I knew the condition of lakes on the west side of the park, such Tim, Rosebary or Ralph Bice. Unfortunately, we only have information based on what we can see from the highway, the Opeongo dock or hear from park staff and other locals. I have heard no reports on that area but would guess that those lakes are not fully open (the road may not even be open). That area of the park is at a fairly high elevation and gets quite a bit more snowfall than the Hwy 60 area. Try calling the park information line at 705-633-5572 and see if they have any insight.
Smoke Lake still 80% filled with ice on April 19

Lake of Two Rivers almost ice-free on April 19
