Breakup is happening! Spring has arrived on Lake Temagami!

“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.”

The ice is for the most part gone.

On Monday May 6 the ice is for the most part gone. There remains some in the extremities of the various arms as I can still see ice to the North Arm towards Keewaydin, We are however travelling by boat to the landing and elsewhere in the hub. A mosquito sighting yesterday means that summer 2013 has officially begun.                                           PJ Healy

Breakup Update for Lake Temagami Access

Break up continues with temperatures in the mid 20′s C helping greatly. I expect all islands to be accessible for the weekend of May 11. People are travelling by boat from Bear Island to the landing however I am unable to access either the north or west side of Bear Island to do the same. I expect to be able to reach the landing in a couple of days. Certainly the North Arm and perhaps others will take longer.                                         PJ Healy

Moving snow to insulate fish huts keeps this operator warm.

John Moskwa March 13 with snow On March 12 I ran into John Moskwa, Loon Lodge, loading snow into a toboggan. The snow he had piled around all of his fish huts/bungalows had melted so to provide insulation he had to rebank each one. I guess you all thought fish hut operators just sat inside collecting money. Not true. Tough way to make a living. Join them for a Loon Burger this summer.
