26th Annual Ice-Out Contest Is Over!
May 1
The Ice Is Off The Lake!!

The ice has finally melted and open water extends across the lake!
The high winds and warm temps the last couple of days did their magic on the ice.
The DNR has determined that as of May 1 the lake was free of ice!!
Just in time for the Minnesota Fishing Opener!!
