Water colour appeared greenish & murky looking upon arrival. Fish frequently jumping out of the water. Folks often kayak here but none observed today. Once water was scooped, it was clear for clarity yet coloured like dirty water with a small worm swimming around in it. The green tinge was not noticeable once in the sample cup & appeared more brownish.
