“The ice is going. On May 11 around noon temperatures around 20C and winds out of the west moved ice around and really opened things up around Garden Island. I hear that there are boats travelling to the landing from Bear Island. Access to islands for the Canadian long weekend next week should be possible for all.”
On May 4 travel to the islands is getting a little problematic. I did manage to obtain a ride on the Bear Island airboat/taxi to the reserve then a snowmobile ride to my island. Most lake residents have taken snowmobiles off the lake as of today.
