The photo above, at top, shows an aerial view (from a kite) of the ice
cover on Sebago Lake, Maine, as observed on February 17, 2021. A
ground view is shown in the bottom photo. There was just enough ice
this past February for the local Rotary Club to safely hold an ice
fishing derby. Nonetheless, the ice was short-lived – open water was
reported 10-days later. Even though the entire lake didn't freeze in
2021, the official ice-out date occurred on March 29. Click here to
see a record of ice-out dates for the past 20-years.
