Went to jimmy lake today and was shock to see ice still covering the lake but it was starting to break-up. i'd say by the weekend it will be open. also went to woods lake nearby and the ice was off and the water temp was 42 degrees. had no bites and it was really windy.
Pineus lake was open as well but the rd from falkland was impassable.

I Just looked at the LacLaJeune web cam and it looks like it will be ice free in a day or 2 at the most.

with a little bit of open water then it should just need a good wind to break it up. my bet is 5 days lol

aberdeen plateau report for may 16th:
Lost lake: 95% ice free. just a little bit of slush at one end. fishable.
doreen: 10 to 20 feet of water at the rec site. rest is slush. should be off by the weekend, sooner if the weather is good.
flyfish #2, Loon, Aileen: road has a couple feet of snow on it. didnt bother walking in.
dee lake: dark slushy ice, bit of water on sides
beaver: dark slushy ice, bit of water on sides
i would put my money on most lakes being fishable up there by the weekend.

anybody ever fish lost lake? i have never had any luck on it. i would figure it would be good since it has a 1 fish limit.

Dugan, Big Lake, Spokin and Bootjack are ice free as well as many others through Horsefly and Likely. Has anybody any news on Raven or lakes out on highway 20? Yesterday I heard Raven still had ice.

Was up on the McCulloch lake area last weekend (May14 sat) and was shocked to see that Browne lk,McCulloch,Idabell and as well as Idleback lake were all still frozen .The edges were just starting to break,couldnt see browne cause of no access snow still too deep.

Bman360 anybody ever fish lost lake? i have never had any luck on it. i would figure it would be good since it has a 1 fish limit.
This lake used to be a trophy lake i have seen 8 pounders 12+ yrs ago ,BUT it has winterkilled in the past and has gone for a shyte...Had one turn me and my belly boat 180* in .4 seconds...once again that was 8+yrs ago....
