I found 8" of ice here at the east marrows of the Indian Dock Channel. Taken Jan.13/19
I found 8" of ice in the middle of Five Mile Bay on the white ice near the snowmobile as well as the whole length from The Indian Dock Channel. I found 7" of black ice at the formerly open pool in the center of the bay. Taken Jan. 13/19
Please note that there is no access to the south channel by snow mobile from Parry sound because of the trials being closed over Parry Island and a bubber at the boat launch at Glen Burney Marina. Some people are looking into this and hopefully a resolution can be found. I will keep you posted.
I stopped on Five Mile Bay in front of Dunroe Is. to check the ice thickness. I found 6" of soft white ice here. The area of open water two weeks ago a little closer to town had 2" of ice. Taken Jan.8/19
Here is a series of pictures taken on my return trip out to Kineras Bay. You can see my track from the trip in in several shots. I was hoping for some sun shine for the trip out but it didn't happen. A little blue sky makes a huge difference in the pictures. Taken Jan.4/19
