As far as we can tell the ice on Saganaga Lake is gone. Yesterday, the 5th of May, will have to be the official ice out date unless we hear otherwise as we weren’t able to go into the Boundary Waters prior to that due to the Coronavirus closure. We also weren’t able to go into Canada since the border is closed so it is possible there is a chunk of ice floating out there somewhere but it wasn’t big enough for us to see.
The ice disappeared quickly this year considering how thick it was just a few weeks ago. The rain and wind along with some warm temperatures did the trick. That’s great news for the fishing opener as well as the re-opening of the BWCA for day use.
We’re happy to have options for paddling once again! Give us a call at Voyageur and we’ll help you plan your trip!
