Comments: Leafy Pondweed showing clear signs of senescence at this time. There are no leaves attached to the decomposing
stems. Moderate to heavy filamentous algae growth on the decomposed plant material preventing plants from settling to
lake bottom. Sparse to heavy filamentous algae along most of the shoreline and in the north end from the island north
across the lake. The spillway is blocked, but there is very heavy inflow from the inlet stream.
