11th CW Ice In and Ice Out

Wednesday, December 8th, 2021

To the top!  Ice in date for 2021 is officially Dec 7th as the ice seems to have held overnight.  Thanks to Josh Kietzman, Chad Braun, and John Paasonen who were giving regular ice movement reports on Facebook.  This moves our average Ice In date one day later to Dec 2nd.  Our Ice Out date last spring was April 6th, which was a couple of weeks ahead of our average of April 20th.

Also rumor has it that Frank Lamb has some historical ice in/ice out data.  If anyone happens to run across it, please send email to admin (email at bottom of main page).  We’d add it right in..Thx

Quick Glance: Average Ice In Date is December 2nd.  Average Ice Out Date is April 20th.IceOut2021


Local Lakes with Invasives

Friday, February 19th, 2021

Hubbard County has updated their mapping system of Invasives with new species (Feb2021).  Its now super easy to click on the various AIS types and see which lakes have confirmed cases.  If you are trailering into or from local area lakes (or if your guests are), this is an invaluable tool to see what you should be paying special attention to.

My only complaint is that Zebra Mussels, which are arguably the most destructive of all Mn AIS, are buried into the far right tab. Please pay special attention to that one.  Link to website is below:
