Any guesses on Ice out dates on the 3 big muskoka lakes. I live south of Toronto and canít check regularly so any info on when I can get up and get my boat back in would be helpful. Donít want to make the drive until ice is gone.

I ice fished both days of this past weekend (Saturday March 21 and Sunday March 22) on a lake in Muskoka area. The lake is quite big, though I don't know if it is one of the "BIG 3" as you named:-). Where I fished, the ice at shoreline is excellent, and the ice on the lake is around 1 foot thick and solid.

I will say I think I shall be able to ice fish this coming weekend on the same lake, too. But then behind this coming weekend how the ice will become, I don't know.

For comparison I ice fished last on this lake the previous two years on April 14, 2019 and on April 22, 2018.

And then at the end of the day, one has to head to the lake, and check it out oneself I am sure!:-)

Most normal years the ice is off around April 20th give or take a week either way.
