May 11 ice-out for Vermilion

Posted

LAKE VERMILION— There was open water for Saturday’s fishing opener on Lake Vermilion, as the lake officially cleared of ice on May 11, about 12 days later than the average date of April 30.
A cool, cloudy, and frequently snowy April allowed winter conditions to linger a bit longer than usual this year. But high winds and warm temperatures early this week helped break up the last of the ice around the area. Wednesday, May 11, was the big day for most of the larger area lakes, including Pelican and Elephant lakes, near Orr, and Fall Lake, near Ely.
Ice-out was declared on May 9 at Bearhead Lake, and May 10 for both Elbow, Moose (end of Fernberg) and Shagawa lakes.
