A cold wind blew mainly from the North today. It made Saganaga Lake a bit choppy and a lot chilly. The sun didn’t want to come out and the temperature only made it up to 36 degrees today. In spite of the cold, anglers bravely went out to cast their lines and were rewarded with walleye, northern and even smallmouth bass. Dressed more like a day of winter ice fishing enabled folks to endure the elements, barely.
Signs of summer exist everywhere at the end of the Gunflint Trail. Marsh marigolds, blueberries and strawberry plants are blooming and there are sizeable green buds on the trees. The water is rushing at the falls at Trail’s End Campground and there are folks camping there too. People are heading out for canoe trips into the wilderness and even some summer cabin owners have returned.
The forecast for tomorrow looks a little better with warmer temperatures on the way. It might even get up to 50 degrees and if the sun comes out and the wind goes down it will be a real treat to be out on the lake fishing.
