Anglers on the Winnipeg River should pay attention. Andrew Liddiard from the Lake of the Woods Control Board says water level are expected to drop six to eight inches tomorrow, then four or five inches Wednesday and Thursday. This could lead to some unstable ice near Darlington Bay.

The plan was revised, due to the cold weather, and it's as follows:

  • On Tuesday February 13 the flow will be reduced from 450 to 330 m3/s beginning at about 9:00am and returning to 450 m3/s at about 11:00am CST. The level of the Winnipeg River downstream of the Dam is expected to drop by 15 to 20 cm (6 to 8 in) and will then rise by the same amount once the flow has been restored.
  • On Wednesday February 14 the flow will be reduced from 450 to 390 m3/s beginning at 8:00 am CST and returning to 450 m3/s at about 2:00pm CST. The level of the Winnipeg River downstream of the Dam is expected to drop by 10 to 13 cm (4 to 5 in) and will then rise by the same amount once the flow has been restored.
  • On Thursday February 15 the flow will be reduced from 450 to 390 m3/s beginning at 8:00 am CST and returning to 450 m3/s by 6:00pm CST. The level of the Winnipeg River downstream of the Dam is expected to drop by 10 to 13 cm (4 to 5 in) and will then rise by the same amount once the flow has been restored.
