Canada weather reports

8 posts in this topic

So I checked the weather channel weather for late this week/next week where we are going in Manitoba. Cloudy/rainy every day. then I checked weatherofficedotgcdotca and it said sunny every day. C'mon, how can they be that far off? If that doesnt just make you lose your confidence in the weather guys, I dont know what does. confused

I ran the Canadian weather last week for Ignace Ontario which is about 50 miles from our camp and they predicted highs in the upper 60s to low 70s. We barely made 50 on Friday and never got to 40 Saturday. They also called out light winds all weekend. We had 4 foot rollers Saturday due to the 40 MPH gusts and steady 30+ north winds.

I wish I could be a Meteorologist where you guess most of the time and are wrong most of that and still get paid!

Hey all...I agree!

I am heading up next week - and the reports vary greatly even within cities that are only about 30 to 40 miles away as the crow flies.

If you are ever going around the angle inlet or LOW area - the bay store camp (hope I can mention that here?) HSOforum has a great weather report thread on the bottom of its home page. It gives a 5 day report - and when you click on the details it gives the wind mph, direction, precipitation, pressure and more with a detailed report in 3 hour increments. It is a nice site and I have found it to be more accurate than other sites.

This weather is something else this year. Suppose to be summer time.... Just north of Lac Seul snowed hard today. NW Ontario must not agree with global warming.

yeah...we are heading up to Ontario on the 10th...calling for temps in the low 60s for highs - and this will be mid-June!

I dont think they have even had temps in the 70s yet!

We were up this past weekend and were told it was the nicest stretch of weather by a longshot. Oaks aren't fully leafed out yet.

Yup - we just got back from manitou. It was around 80 on Saturday and Sunday. Water temp went from 53 to 63 to 65 and even warmer in some spots. Had a great week of weather and a very nice time.

    • IKR! My big decision was if I was going to spend one more day ice Fishing or not?
    • Hey how bout those WILD! Wild beat rival Blackhawks, take over Central Division lead
    • Today is clean house day here. $#@! 
    • Well, if I woulda spent some time in the bichfest forum last night I would've been reminded to make other plans than going to work today. So there coulda been some value there.   Got payroll approved and saw I was on holiday today so I left.    Still not used to having this day off.
    • Packers in the NFC Championship game, Lions in the playoffs, Viking eliminated early. At least you were right about the Bears. 
    • Just a reminder that today (Monday Jan. 16th) is Monday. It is best observed in an individual manner with each of us according it the solemnity we believe it deserves. And keep in mind that Tuesday is coming up.  And then Wednesday. And after that it is Thursday.   Don't look for a point to this post because there isn't one. 
    • 1.16.17 Sunset Lodge Fishing Report   Hello once again from the Northwest Angle!   We're back with another fishing report this week. It was another cold week out on the ice with temperatures below zero for most of the week. We should be out of the cold stretch for a while now and the weather for the next couple weeks is looking really good!   On the Minnesota side, we have our houses on Rabbit Ears, Four Blocks and Little Oak. All have been producing fish. Out at Little Oak, we are fishing in 24-28 feet of water off of structure and out in the mud. At Four Blocks, we are fishing in 22-27 feet of water and have found some very nice slot fish coming up the holes. At Rabbit Ears, we are still in 21-26 and it is still producing buckets of fish consistently. Best colors have been pink and gold tipped with a minnow.   On the Canadian side, the crappie and walleye bite has been very good. Limits of nice crappies have been coming back every day with some being in that 15-16" range. We are fishing in 27-33 feet for those, with small tungsten jigs tipped with a minnow or plastic. Walleyes have been very consistent in 25-30 feet of water on the Canadian side, also. Same jig colors as the US side, gold and pink tipped with a minnow.   Until next week everyone, stay warm and tight lines! Forrest Huset
    • I was just wondering if you had a point, that's all. I guess the answer is no.
