Ice and snow report – January 10, 2020
More snow, the same amount of ice, increasing slush. It seems to be snowmobiles, snowshoes, and maybe even skis are the only form of backwoods transportation now. Of course, more snow means more drifts and more slush on the lakes. Slush conditions on average are still ok locally; other lakes are reporting thicker slush with deeper snow.
Nipigon River Bait and Tackle have abundant minnows with a fresh delivery just arrived. Rentable sleighs, augers, rods equipment and maps are also available.
Snow cover is nearing 3 feet in the area around Nipigon with more just north, west and east. Drifting snow throughout the region makes for very deep snow near shorelines and along roadways and open areas.
Snowmachines are around everywhere now, Packing commonly used trails and making the trails passable.
Seasonal temperatures are hanging around for the foreseeable future with nighttime temperatures hopefully cold enough to keep the slush to a minimum.
Wind forecast looks good for the next week or so, although winds can change. I use the app/website windy.com which seems pretty reliable.
