Current Ice Conditions on Perrault Lake

Perrault Lake has 20" of blue ice covered with another 15" or so of slush ice. We have not been able to get on any of the lakes until just lately, as the slush has been a big problem. We're finally getting some colder weather and that is helping to freeze up the slush so you can ride on it. Just beginning to try some more ice fishing, and enjoyed a delicious fish fry last night!

Natural Ice Sculptures on Perrault Lake

Gale & I were out ice fishing the other day, and noticed a lot of strange ice formations on the south end of the lake. We took a ride down to take a closer look for ourselves, and as you can see in the pictures, we found some beautiful ice sculptures along the shoreline. The wind was blowing very hard from the north in November when the ice was forming and I believe the waves splashing up on the south shoreline instantly froze into these beautiful formations. We have never seen this kind of massive ice build-up before

With the snowmachine in front, you can see how expansive these formations are! We took a few more of these - once in a lifetime sight, I'm sure!

Gale shown in front of one of the formations. Twice as tall as she is! Notice the wind angle at the rear of the formation.

Bob is sitting on a natural ice Captain's chair nestled in the ice block. Notice the icle in the front. It was out by itself, about 4 feet in front of the formation, and it stands approx. 6 feet tall!

Long expanse of ice. The big cedar on the right has ice creeping up it's trunk probably 15 feet in height.

Hope you enjoyed these amazing photos as much as we enjoyed seeing them!

Till next time, keep warm, and enjoy your winter!

Sport Show and Promotion Updates

Just got back from the Green Bay All Canada Sport Show a couple of weeks ago and it turned out to be a very busy one. It was great to see so many of our regular guests come in to say hello, and we look forward to seeing them, along with all the new guests we met at the show, up at the Lodge this summer.

There have been some changes and additions to our website lately, in an effort to give you the most information possible to help you plan your trips. One of the most significant of these is a link to The Canadian Border Crossing Resource Guide. Many guests have questions about crossing the border, and this site covers just about everything. There are also links to fishing regulations, and a new FAQ page. Check it out if you haven't lately. If there's information that you'd like to see on the website, please let us know.

We are also excited to have a new feature being added to our website. Now we will be able to offer guests and potential guests interested in coming to our Lodge, automatic delivery of the Rainbow Point Lodge E-Newsletter right to their e-mail box. These newsletters will keep you up to date on news at the Lodge, as well as well as have advance notice of any last minute openings or specials as they arise during the year. If you want to be in the loop of what's new, and want to take advantage of special savings offers at the Lodge, simply subscribe to our E-Newsletter from our Website. You can choose to opt out of the membership at any time.
