Has this late thaw affected your plans?

My first trip was planned for June. So, my plans are still on.

Well our spring fishing trip in Algonquin is becoming a spring camping and hiking trip in Killarney. As my son said we might as well go to Killarney since we can't fish anyway. (Yes I know there are parts of Killarney where you can fish, but I'm not sure any of the lakes are open for trout. ) I'm just looking forward to a tent, a campfire and a chance to explore a bit.

Tried to paddle the Salmon R. last weekend. There is a lakey bit above the main section of river below Hwy 7. In the past, it has been frozen solid enough to get out and walk across. Last weekend, the ice was too thick to paddle through and too thin to walk on. After several attempts, and a scout of the possible portage, we bailed.

Might be open this weekend, but it's a long drive to find out. Probably will put off our first descent until the first weekend in May.

I'm thinking the same/similar date for the Salmon, the Tamworth gauge is showing levels a bit higher than the last time I paddled there (April 23, 2015) so it should be a nice level in 10 days.

I might go up to Tamworth this weekend. I'll let you all know what I see.

Thanks. The lake is actually closer to Arden than Tamworth. Worse is that the widest section that is/was frozen can't be seen from the road.

But any intel would be appreciated.
