May 22, 2014: Shoal Lake

Maybe we are not quite done yet. The latest Satellite Photo reveals that a sizeable ice pan still survives on the Big Traverse, and that the ice is not all gone on Shoal Lake.

Please welcome Matthew to the Ice Patrol; he is able to get aerial photos of the Shoal Lake area sometimes. Here is the latest of them, taken Thursday afternoon.

I had many queries from people with properties on Shoal Lake this spring, and I’m looking forwards to having better coverage next year, with Matthew’s help.

  1. Great resource. Well done site. Any summer pictures? Flooding. Turtle Portage. Fort St. Charles. Northern Harbour. Winnipeg River. Thanks.

  2. I really love this website – do you provide details on when the ice freezes up ? I am curious about Shoal Lake in particular.
