Red Lake, Ontario in the Boreal ForestOwes its dry, sunny weather to the influence of the Canadian Prairies, not far to the west.
Summer time and the living is easy; fish are jumping…
Lake water is usually very pleasant for swimming in July, August & often times in mid-to-late June.
The dry air and Bow Narrows’ location on a peninsula keep insects like mosquitoes in check.
We have nearly 20 hours of daylight in June. This gives ample opportunities for fishing but is not so good to see Northern Lights. May, August & September are better for that.
The Perseid Meteor Shower in mid-August can be fabulous in our dark sky with no light pollution.
Bring binoculars for fantastic sharp images of the moon plus other astronomical objects like nebulae.
Sunsets are like no where else on earth!
Daytime highs; May/Sep 60s, June 70s, July-August 80
The sun this far North can be intense so don’t forget to bring sunscreen and a large-brimmed hat.
Once in awhile we are affected by cool rainy weather so also be prepared with excellent rainwear & boots!
