Mark your calendar. Last Friday morning marked the clearest water in Lake Manitou for at least the last twenty years. A passing thing no doubt, as the sun was out in full force, the wind was non-existent, and there were no boats on the lake. The Memorial Day holiday soon put an end to the clarity--as the boat wakes stirred the silt back into the water from the bottom. The lake has a very gentle slope shore to water--which puts the lake bottom at the mercy of any wind or boat driven waves. It was amazing for a bit, though. You could see the bass and buffalo fish swimming by as if you were looking into an aquarium. I'm including a pix of the bottom--not pretty--but remarkable.
