CdA Resort: Water’s Still Chilly

On the Coeur d'Alene Resort Facebook page: “While Lake Coeur d’Alene is beautiful year-round, it’s still a little chilly mid-spring. Currently the water temperature is around 51 – 53 degrees. Too cold? There are a few that plan to get their first open water swims in this week. When do you plan to get in the water?”

DFO: The sunbathers have emerged at City Beach and nearby NIC beach this week. But I don't notice too many of them getting in the water. Mebbe a child or two — and then up to its knees. I usually don't consider jumping in area waters until late June.

Question: When do you usually jump in the lake for the first time annually?
