Welcome to

Winter

by Shayla Smith

"Mom, look! There's more snow on the ground!" This is a refrain I hear every other day at this time of year. My son's excitement for fresh snow knows no bounds— even when our snowbanks are taller than our windows. As far as he's concerned, the more snow the better. And while I can appreciate his enthusiasm, it wasn't so long ago that I shuddered every time I heard someone quote, "Winter is coming..." I loved winter as a child, but somewhere between my teens and my twenties, I lost my enthusiasm for the season. Maybe it was an age thing, or city living. Maybe I just needed kids to remind me of all the fantastic things that come with winter. Whatever it was, after moving back to Kenora my love for winter returned. While I may not share my son's exuberance, as I put together this edition of Kenora Stuff I couldn't help but get excited for all the fantastic things that come with winter: ice fishing (and fresh walleye dinners), snowmobiling with the kids, playing hockey with the old ladies (and the young ones), or just lacing up for a game of pond hockey at home. There'll be plenty of pool time on the really cold days, and I can't wait to toast marshmallows over a bonfire on the milder afternoons. And then—because five months of winter is plenty—watching the ice go out in the spring! So yes, winter is here. Bring it on.

ice Fishing

Fun

Around Kenora

14

WINTER 2019–20 | kenorastuff.com


Located on the north side of Lake of the Woods, Kenora has been a popular fishing destination for open water anglers for the past century. Anglers from all over the world visit the Kenora area every summer to sample the topnotch fishing opportunities that exist. Over the past couple of decades there has been a big increase in anglers visiting the area to ice fish because the same opportunities are available during the winter months as well. The increased popularity of ice fishing is due in part to the evolution of equipment that anglers have available today to make fishing more successful and fun. Better clothing and shelters allow us to venture out in any conditions, GPS and sonar units have excellent mapping for choosing fishing locations and we can see if there are fish beneath our holes. Augers and tackle are better while snowmobiles and ATVs can gain us access to remote locations on big lakes and smaller back lakes that may only be accessible by air in the summer. Do you need all of this new stuff to catch fish? Absolutely not, but all of these things can help make the experience more enjoyable if you like to fish. Over the years I have hosted hundreds of guided trips on the ice, taking people of all skill levels fishing. Nearly every TV fishing show that has taped an ice fishing episode has visited the Kenora area to film shows because there are not many places where you can catch trophy lake trout, walleye, pike, whitefish, perch, stocked trout, crappie and even burbot. If you want action you can find good numbers of all of these species as well. You can catch all of these fish in areas with relatively easy access as well so if you don’t have a snowmobile, you can still get out there on the many ice roads around the area. There are plenty of good guides in the Kenora area as well who can provide all the gear you need for a day of fishing on the ice, you just need to show up with proper clothing.

Plucking Perch When I was younger, we didn’t keep perch. It’s walleye country around Kenora and there was a stigma that perch were no good. I can remember watching people break their necks and feed them to the birds; looking back, that was wrong.

On Lake of the Woods, the perch population has exploded in recent years with excellent numbers of big perch. Not only are they easy to catch, they are fantastic to eat. They are very easy to clean—similar to a walleye—and you can cook them any way you like. Perch can be caught across the northern part of Lake of the Woods but the area on the south side of Coney Island, just out from Kenora along the ice road is one of the best areas on the lake. Fishing in 24 to 32 feet of water around reefs and the ends of points will put you in contact with perch. When it comes to catching them, small jigs and spoons tipped with minnows work great. They tend to school up so if you fish a spot for a bit and aren’t catching them, just keep moving around until you find them.

16


Whacking Walleye Walleye are still the king around Kenora for good reason. They are plentiful on Lake of the Woods as well as many lakes surrounding the city. If you have the gear to get out on Lake of the Woods, you can take a ride south on the ice road from Kenora and find walleyes on the many humps and reefs scattered around the lake. The central section of the lake has the best population of fish, in the area known as the Manitou as well as the area south of 12 Mile Portage. If you’re interested in fishing some of the smaller lakes around town you can use the Ontario Fish ON-Line website to see a listing of the fish species in each body of water in the province, it’s a great tool. When it comes to catching walleyes, on the big lake, you want to focus on fishing in 28-35 feet of water most days, with good fishing shallower in the prime-time hour just before dark. On some of the smaller lakes, you will find fish shallower. With ice fishing and this goes for all species, if you aren’t catching fish, keep drilling holes until you find them. The days of sitting on a bucket over a hole and getting cold are over. A jig tipped with a minnow or a spoon tipped with a minnow head are top baits on all waters. I can go on and on about the great fishing opportunities around the Kenora region but we only have so much space here. If you have interest in catching a trophy pike or lake trout or getting into a bunch of crappies, always a hit with kids, they are all plentiful as well. If you are visiting the area, try to connect with a guide who will be able to get you on a good spot to catch all of these fish. Since fishing is such a popular activity around Kenora, most of the hotels around town are accommodating to anglers. Same goes for restaurants and many businesses around town, it is a very welcoming community with some great fishing close by. 

to do  Walk, Hike or Snowshoe Our most popular summer trails, including Tunnel Island, Vernon Nature Trails, Mink Bay and Rushing River, offer varying degrees of winter wilderness walking and hiking exploration and challenge. The tranquillity is unmatched under a fresh blanket of snow. Parking is available nearby each venue and pack a lunch for a picnic along the route.  Drop a Line Kenora is world famous for its open-water fishing. Truth be told, its ice fishing is just as great. Including Lake of the Woods, many frozen lakes and rivers surround Kenora and a little exploration will land you on some great fishing holes.

Snowmobiling Since 1989, Sunset Trail Riders has been Kenora’s local Snowmobile Club. Associated with the Ontario Federation of Snowmobile Clubs (OFSC), the local club grooms hundreds of kilometres of trails in the Kenora region reaching westward to the Ontario/Manitoba border. The club offers training programs, a trail guide and updated trail reports, as well as permit information at sunsettrailriders.ca.

The Ski Club offers equipment rentals for all ages and sizes and offers individual or group downhill skiing and snowboarding lessons. Day-use and seasonal passes are available on-site. The licensed chalet offers a retreat from the hills with warm drinks and snacks. Follow skikenora.com.

Ice roads are plowed from town and stretch to various parts of the lake. Often used by cottagers, contractors and ice fishermen, the roads are well traveled and offer a unique perspective on life in the North. Use caution when driving on the ice and if uncertain, ask an authority.

BUILDING DREAM S


LAKE OF THE WOODS

ICE PATROL BY TIM ARMSTRONG

The Lake of the Woods Ice Patrol didn’t leap into existence in April of 2014 as a fully-formed website with aerial photographs, satellite imagery, commentary and graphs. It began much earlier, with a simple question in the spring of 1990. “Can I get to my camp yet?” It turned out to be an important question for a lot of people. Because Lake of the Woods is so full of islands, you cannot tell how much of the lake is open simply by walking down to the waterfront.

24


My friends Brian and Linda were frustrated because a long cold boat ride could them get close to their cottage, but ice on the home stretch prevented them from reaching their property. As a professional pilot, I could see vast stretches of the lake as I came in to land at the Kenora airport, and a small detour let me look at their camp on Treaty Island. Their problem was an ice-road. These are laid out where the ice is thick and strong to begin with, and plowing them clear of snow makes the ice even thicker, so they are slow to melt. I began keeping my friends updated on how the thaw was going. From those early verbal reports, the Ice Patrol began to grow more sophisticated. In 2003, I bought a modest digital camera, and on the camera’s tiny screen, I could show my friends the pictures the same day I took them. I began emailing pictures to some other people with camps a little further out. As that got more complicated, opening a Photobucket account reduced the upload time, but commentary was limited to short captions, so it was hard to explain what was shown in each picture, or what it meant in terms of overall progress. In 2014, it occurred to me that I could do more with Ice Patrol if I did it as a blog, and it turns out WordPress will let you post a lot of pictures. Lake of the Woods Ice Patrol became part of the internet, accessible to anyone, not just subscribers. I thought I might expand my reach from a dozen or so acquaintances to perhaps as many as a hundred people.

By late April of 2019, Lake of the Woods had a lot of open water near Kenora, but ice still blocked boaters from going very far. Kenora is at the lower right in this shot looking west.

25


A photo taken in late March of 2019: the camera was pointing north, and downtown Kenora is in the upper right corner. There is open water in Keewatin Channel and Safety Bay, where currents are strong, but sturdy ice everywhere else. Ice roads are prominent in the foreground.

But the spring of 2014 was a miserably cold season with a late thaw that threatened to jeopardize the May long weekend. People were desperate for news. Word began to spread, and Ice Patrol started racking up thousands of hits. All of those new visitors needed some perspective, so I drew my first graph to show when the lake had finished melting in recent years. A lot of people wrote in to ask me stuff, and I realized I needed a Frequently Asked Questions page. And then a wonderful thing happened. People began helping me. Not just my co-workers at MAG Canada, who have always been good about taking pictures, or assigning me to training flights that took me over the lake with more freedom to move around, but complete strangers. Pilots who were passing by sent me snapshots. These range from beautiful landscapes shot from small planes at low altitudes to enormous vistas taken from high-flying airliners. A couple of people who had kept diaries of the ice-out date at their camp shared their information with me, and their records went back many years further.

Someone pointed me to the University of Wisconsin’s satellite imagery site, and I got permission from the head of the program to put extracts from some of their photographs on the website. As I don’t often fly on the weekends, this grew into Satellite Saturdays, now a regular feature of Ice Patrol. A fellow called Sean started graphing temperature trends for me, and clued me in to how the spring thaw really gets under way only when the mean daily temperature rises consistently above freezing. From there, using weather forecasts, he could estimate how long it might take to thaw the whole lake. There are many variables, so we’re still working on refining this process. Boaters started using the comments section to report how far they had been able venture on the water, providing details helpful to their neighbours on the lake. I’ve learned that the basic process of thawing Lake of the Woods goes like this. Some areas with strong currents begin to open up in March, but overall, the ice is still growing thicker until daily temperatures are above freezing more than they are below.

In 2019, large stretches of water were navigable by early May, but areas with less current were still ice-covered.

As temperatures rise in the spring months, and the sun rises higher, the melting becomes more widespread, and the quality of the ice deteriorates everywhere.

About Tim Armstrong

Once half the lake is open, wind starts moving the ice around and the process accelerates.

has lived in Kenora since 1985, when he took a

Every year follows a similar pattern, but the timing varies widely. Some years the lake is ice-free in mid-April, but in other years, ice has lasted until late May. One big variable is how thick the ice is. A long cold winter lays down a much more ice than a mild one. Then, when the thaw begins, spring weather can do almost anything, ranging from summery heat one April to wintry cold snaps in another. A timely rainfall can strip off the ice’s snow-cover, speeding up the thaw, but a late snowstorm can do the opposite. Trying to forecast the thaw is frustrating, but watching it unfold can be fascinating.

Tim has been a pilot for over forty years, and job as a radio announcer at CJRL. In 1988, he returned to his flying career as a float pilot for Walsten Air (1986) Ltd. It wasn’t long before he was based at the airport and working yearround. The company has undergone a lot of changes since then: the float base was sold off and the company has changed hands and been renamed. The planes Tim flies now for MAG Canada are Beechcraft King Airs:

In recent years, although most visitors have logged onto Ice Patrol from Canada or the USA, there have been visits from over a hundred different countries. Not just the obvious winter homes for property owners who are snowbirds, such as Caribbean islands, Mexico and the US, but also less likely places like Australia and Japan, and some downright baffling ones like Nepal and Ethiopia.

During the final weeks of last year’s thaw, Ice Patrol saw more traffic than ever, racking up over 15,000 clicks a week, and sometimes more than three thousand visits per day. The site goes dormant after the ice is gone, with articles very rarely posted outside the six to eight weeks of the thaw.

Sunset Trail Riders In 1989 a group of snowmobilers met at the Pellatt United Fire Fighters Fire Hall in LacLu, coming together to form the Sunset Trails Riders (STR). These local snowmobilers (sledders) worked to create a network of snowmobile trails in the Kenora area and were originally part of SnoMan, Manitoba's snowmobile governing body, for liability insurance purposes. In 1991 STR snowmobile club joined the Ontario Federation of Snowmobile Clubs (OFSC) to be included in the development of a Trans Ontario Provincial Trail and promotion of snowmobiling as winter recreation and winter tourism across the Province of Ontario.

Today there are over 600 members of STR snowmobile club with 45 per cent of the membership coming in from Manitoba. These members purchase the required permit to ride prescribed OFSC trails knowing the fees are collected to maintain excellent trail conditions the area has come to expect. A dedicated group of volunteers take on all the work of trail maintenance—cutting and clearing trails, placing over 4,000 trail marker stakes and signs in the fall, removing them in the spring, and even operating one of the three full-size groomers. Volunteers begin working on the trails each October using all their own chainsaws, 4-wheelers, snow machines and other equipment. Some trails are not

STR MAINTAINS & RIDES accessible until January when the thickness of good, blue ice has reached six inches, and up to the 16 inches required for groomers. The readiness of the ice is important for the safety of the volunteers and the use of groomers across frozen swamps and waterways. The club is always looking for volunteers to keep trails in exceptional riding conditions for all members to enjoy. The STR board meets regularly and welcomes new members who may have some time to work on trails or organize riding events.
