Area youths, like our granddaughter, Lucie, are for many years
deprived of the recreational opportunities that the lake and Corps
campgrounds would have provided.
All the white is blowing sand from the uncovered
Geese wade ankle-deep a hundred yards or more from
what should be the lake shore. At the point where I took
this picture, the water should be better than six feet
over my head, or 13-feet deep.
A freshwater clam.
The weeds would not be here in a healthy lake. Since the bottom
would be lacking the rock, marine vegetation, etc. that normally provide
havens for small fish to find cover, flexible pipe is cut and set in blocks
of concrete to make artificial fish havens.
