Monday turned out to be relatively nice for this time of year. The storm cleared a little quicker than forecast, and afternoon snow flurries did not occur. There was a mix of sun and clouds with the temperature getting a degree or two above freezing. Tuesday morning is not quite as cold as had been predicted. They say it will not get above freezing the entire day, and tonight is supposed to be fairly cold again. There is a pretty good chance that today will be the last boating out of the marina for this year. It does not take much to create ice with the water temperature already near freezing and very little warming effect each day with the sun so low in the sky.
Bass season ends November 30. Lake trout season re-opens January 1. Limerick is a "1 line" lake for ice fishing.
A little added entertainment Monday afternoon./ Spotted a muskrat eating what looked to be a sizable lake trout while sitting in the sun on the open dock. With deer hunting season over the turkeys and deer are back in the parking lot everyday.
Depending upon what is happening with allowable group gathering sizes, the Lodge will re-open for winter activities around January 29th. We have availability every weekend except Feb. 20 which is booked.
The launch ramp has frozen over thick enough to no longer be usable anywhere from November 14th to December 8th in the last few years. Hard to predict the exact end of the boating season, but somewhere around the 24th seems like a good guess based on the 7 day forecast.
