The lakes are slowly becoming liquid once again. Matt and Cassidy took a tour of Saganaga over the weekend and there was just one big chunk left on the Canadian side of the lake. We’re guessing it has broken up and sunk by now and very shortly all of the lakes on the Gunflint Trail will be completely ice free. The water levels are rising, things are greening up and fishing opener is right around the corner.
We know folks are enthusiastic to get out to paddle and camp in the Boundary Waters. We are just as excited. Just remember to wear your life vest and paddle close to shore as the water temperature is dangerously cold. A person can only survive a couple of minutes in water that cold. With that said, let the paddling season begin!
