34-22-16 Several residents have noticed the huge algae bloom now in progress. Algae blooms occur each year, sometimes several times a year. Some years the blooms are worse than others. There are several varieties of algae in our lake. The blooms range from virtually unnoticed to a green scummy mess covering water, mostly noticeable in coves where winds are lighter. The bloom now in progress is the latter. There is no prevention or eradication for the algae blooms. The algae will run its cycle, die and settle to the lake bottom. It may be early May before this bloom disappears.

LAKE RULES... Have you read them? You must be familiar with and abide by the Rules or you could be banned from the lake. The Rules are on this website on the page Rules of the Lake.
LAKE STAGE April 22, 2016 +5.5"
FYI...at its peak on March 10, 2016 the lake was +21.0".
The lake stage is based on the overflow at the weir on the west end of the dam. Zero is the level at which water will begin to flow over the lip of the weir. -6.0 means the lake must rise 6 inches to reach the lip of the weir. +6.0 would mean the water will continue to flow into the weir until the lake level drops 6 inches.
