June 5, 2019: Big Trout Lake

Just in case you were wondering when the last ice in Ontario melts, here’s a picture of it.

Big Trout Lake is over 500 kilometres north of Kenora, and as you might guess from the name, it is both large and deep. There are lakes further north, but because they’re smaller and have more current, they thaw earlier.

  1. Bit off topic of ice here, but I was last on Big Trout Lake almost 50 years ago. Your comment that it is large and deep twigged a memory. It is true that it is large and deep. But strangely it is only deep in one area in my recollection from the fishing I did on the lake. And that area is very small, maybe a mile or two in extent. The rest of the lake is shallow flats. Great for fishing in mid summer then of course, since all the trout are in one hole!

    The absolute last time I was there was in January of the early 70’s. We landed and stayed at the metrology station. According to staff it was 58 below zero and the wind was 18 mph from the north. No wonder the inflection point is a little later there, LOL

  2. Thanks for making ice out , my only Really show! Lol.love that you make this effort ,it make a world of difference to both cottage people and Comercial enterprises . Wishing you smooth flights and safe landings.
