As of yesterday afternoon (April 15th), the main body of Cranberry Lake had not opened. Cranberry Lake Lodge has a web cam that looks out onto the main body of the lake: http://www.cedarpath.com/crancam.html
Currently (as of 5:00 pm on April 16th) 14 mph winds in the area, with a wind advisory through tomorrow, for gusts up to 50 mph: [url]http://www.wunderground.com/cgi-bin/findweather/getForecast?query=Cranberry
However, yesterday at the Pine Cone put-in, where the east branch of Oswegatchie enters Cranberry Lake, it was open water as far as I could see. Found the Ranger School web cam, but I cannot access this link, as my computer security software "cannot verify the publisher": [url]http://www.esf.edu/rangerschool/webcam.htm
I'm wimping out this weekend and will confine my paddling to Hannawa Pond across the street from our house.
Next week looks warmer on Cranberry, but with the usual, ever-present winds - too bad I've got to work, as this weekend's weather will hopefully open up the main body of the lake.
