A lot nicer day on Saturday than had been predicted. The clouds thinned during the morning hours and there was a mix of sun and clouds the rest of the day. First sunshine in 4 days. The temperature stayed in the upper 30F range with a light, northerly wind. Not a bad day for outdoor chores. Sunday is supposed to be a little nicer. More sunshine and the temperature a bit warmer. Melting has continued and the open area of the lawn and parking lot is now about 70% bare. Still lots of snow in the forest. One of the forecast services is predicting a major, early season blizzard for Monday through Wednesday. EC is saying it will be mostly rain, but Instant Weather Ontario is predicting upwards of 30cm of snow at this latitude. Could be a messy start to the week.
Depending upon what is happening with allowable group gathering sizes, the Lodge will re-open for winter activities around January 29th. We have availability every weekend except Feb. 20 which is booked.
Bass season ends November 30. Lake trout season re-opens January 1. Limerick is a "1 line" lake for ice fishing.
The launch ramp has frozen over thick enough to no longer be usable anywhere from November 14th to December 8th in the last few years. While it was frozen hard this past week for a few days, the warmer weather and rain has it open again. Most of the slips are ice covered, but the launch ramp is open water today.
