It maybe hard to belive but when I was a kid the city would bring in beach sand for about 100 yards of the lake front for people that wanted to use the lake as a swimming area an the water was clear and clean, good fishing also and the ferry boat would take you for a ride aound the lake. We had a zoo, there also at one time. Then someone put in a golf course up stream of the lake and in my thinking the over use of firtilizer and or the run off of same may the water grow any plant life there, so we have now what you see, sorry. Sure wish it was like it was back then.
