I'm thinking the sun makes all the difference. in years to come, with the carbon tax taking hold we should expect ice well into June.

considering the history of the lake I very much doubt there will ever be ice in june, money grabbing politicians and their propaganda will only make one thing frozen in june and that's your wallet. lol

with all the rain in the forecast the next week, things should start progressing. ( IMO )
any locals have any insight on ice thickness at the moment? i read on another board that the thickness on a lake about 45 minutes north of NIP still had 2 & 1/2 feet of solid ice on it..

cant tell you thickness of ice but I can tell you thaw is well underway, temps now are 24 hours a day above freezing and double digit daytime, plus rainfall warnings so a lot should happen in the next week.

That may not mean a whole lot. 70-100km's north can mean a world of difference.

We were in full out thaw mode one year and well into it. I grabbed a rod and went for a drive north to some trout lakes about 45mins-1hr away. Got up there and they were STILL ICE FISHING!

Current level is 195.863 (as of 3:35 this morning) above sea level. The highest peak water level I have recorded in the last 7 years is 196.18. Currently the water is rising from 0.067 (2.6") to 0.093 (3.6") meters a day and has been around that since the 18th of April. At the current rate we will be above the highest I have recorded in less than 5 days.
I tried to find information on the highest recorded level but was not able to find anything. I think it will be a bad year for high water though.

Good info on water levels Neil...enjoyed your report.
I'm also a bit concerned about the water levels this year (but, I'm like an old woman and worry most years...so that's nothing new)....knowing we aren't yet to the usual high water date most springs. There would appear to be a good amount of water yet to come.
I do the eye test each spring based on the most recent high water mark I made on one of my dock posts. I think I made the mark back in 2013 (not completely positive on the year). I replaced my old dock in 2012. As of today, the lake looks about 2-3 inches away from the peak for the most recent high water year I recorded.
I know it was even higher then that as recently as 2009 (I believe)...which was the highest I'd seen in the last 10-15 years or so.
Bottom line...I'd agree...it definitely looks like it's going to be another high water spring on Nipissing.
Here's hoping the shoreline damage in minimal for all waterfront owners.
