I was out this past weekend myself. It will take a lot more searching, but we won't throw in the towel. So far we haven't found anything better than being able to see 5'. We will keep on searching for some clearer water.

Report from the weekend, clarity is poor most spots were around 2-3 ft best for me being 4 ft and that was a fuzzy 4 ft. Got to keep searching. Good luck to all

I was out checking water clarity this past week-end. The spots I checked were about the same as you found. 3-4 ft white disc gone at 4 ft. Murky all the way. I put a camera down & drilled another hole 4ft away. I put a white coffee cup down that hole & couldn't see it on camera. I drilled another hole 2 ft away & I could barely see the white cup. Not good. I thought maybe the dirty water might be suspended & then be clear on the bottom but it was the same all the way down. I have not heard of anyone finding clear water yet. If it is algae & not run off it may clear up if the lake stays covered with snow. I will keep checking in the upcoming weeks to see if it's getting any better. I have seen it clear up in the past but this is really some bad looking water. Hopefully we'll get some improvement.
