Has anyone been near the lake today?

Is it starting to warm up yet?

I'm dying to get my kayak out and build my strength for whitewater season, which should be starting now with all this snowmelt.

My wetsuit doesnt fit me anymore (unless I use a huge effort to get into it), so do you think it would be warm enough to paddle around in a nylon drytop and sealed into the kayak? Or is it still too cold?

Do you think it's just "too chilly", or "oh my god, this is so fucking freezing it feels like 1000 knives, jabbing and twisting!!!!"

Is the shoreline still iced up? My indication that it was warm enough at my old house was if the ice was almost gone on the river, just a few little chunks floating around. But that was when my wetsuit still fit me.

I thought that someone would know, with all the talk in that fishing thread.

Oh well, I guess I'll just go out on the water tomorrow anyway. I've had Hypothermia before on several occasions, I'll be ok. :)

i dunno i'm no scientist but i would think it takes more than 20 minutes of warm weather to heat up about a gazillion gallons of water..

but thats just me..
