Spring weather trends at Perrault Falls

We know all of you fishermen (& ladies) are anxious to hear all about the lake levels and weather, so here's a quick update.  The calendar page has turned, and opening day is in sight!

We had a very long stretch of above normal temperatures early this spring, and as we mentioned before the ice went out on Perrault Lake exceptionally early on April 14th.  Since then we've seen 3 solid weeks of beautiful summer-like weather, wil absolutely no rain.  Evenings still dipped down to the mid/high 30's, but day-time crept up to the high 70's some days.  The high lake levels we saw last fall are long gone, and with not much for run-off this spring, the lake is down considerably -not the lowest we've seen, but certainly down.  All the warm dry weather resulted in extreme forest fire danger, and the MNR implemented the restricted fire zone designation. 

This week we've seen a change in the weather pattern that looks like it will stick for about a week +-.  Finally got our much needed rain; enough for the MNR to drop their fire ban, so that is always a relief.  Day time temps are a chilly and damp 50 deg +-, and down to just above freezing at night.  More seasonable for this time of year, but I'm sure it will turn around again before long.

Will update things soon.  Right now we've got plenty to keep us busy getting ready for all of you to arrive! 

Oh... still have a few spots open for spring fishing!   Give us a call today to set up a quick long weekend trip, or maybe you can swing a week.  Life is too short - get out enjoy it!
