Notes

Smokey sky. Water is calm. We have experienced high temperatures, brisk/high winds from the NW and NE directions. Severe thunderstorm, heavy rain and hail.
Dead carp are everywhere- in the lake and on the shorelines throughout the entire lake. Water is quite “green” at times, no visual yet of blue-green algae ( thank goodness). Residents of the area are quite concerned about the cause of the dead fish, is the water safe for recreational activities and whether the “sport fish such as perch or pickerel are safe to consume. Disposal of dead fish on beach front is also a major concern.
