Boundary Waters Ice Out Update -- Not Yet

ICE OUT UPDATE:  Currently although we have a favorably warm forecast for the rest of the week with possible thundershowers tomorrow there is still 20" to 24" of ice on most of the lakes of any size.  Portages in the woods have a foot of snow on many that have tree cover.  Ice is beginning to pull away from the edges of the lakes.  As the week goes on we will keep you updated.  AS OF TUESDAY MORNING, THE FOREST SERVICE HASN'T DONE ANY FLY OVERS TO CHECK OUT THE ICE BUT THEY ARE LIKELY TO IN THE NEXT FEW DAYS.   If we get any first hand knowledge of openings, rivers, etc. WE WILL POST AS SOON AS WE KNOW ANYTHING.
