We are fortunate most of the cabins and RV sites have a good view of this area.

"There will be days when the fishing is better than one's most optimistic forecast, others when it is far worse. Either is a gain over just staying home."

|" Each year a Bald Eagle couple will renew their life-long commitment in a courtship flight. The pair engage in a crescendo of airborne acrobatics. At the finale of this dance, they lock talons and, intensely mesmerized by each other, share a dazzling and daring free fall from the sky. For hundreds of feet they tumble together at incredible speeds and then.... just before they reach the surface of the water below, they create magic, opening their wings and break away. The courtship flight is at an end. The vows are renewed, and life together will continue. "

(Bitch) Lake - a Fish Story
What is meant by " Lake Turnover " ?
How and why do lakes do this in autumn and spring?
The key to this question is how water density varies with water temperature.
Water is most dense (heaviest) at 39Âº F (4Âº C) and as temperature increases
or decreases from 39Âº F, it becomes increasingly less dense (lighter). In
summer and winter, lakes are maintained by climate in what is called a
stratified condition. Less dense water is at the surface and more dense water
is near the bottom.
During late summer and autumn, air temperatures cool the surface water causing its density to increase. The heavier water sinks, forcing the lighter, less dense water to the surface. This continues until the water temperature at all depths reaches approximately 39Âº F. Because there is very little difference in density at this stage, the waters are easily mixed by the wind. The sinking action and mixing of the water by the wind results in the exchange of surface and bottom waters which is called " turnover. " During spring, the process reverses itself. This time ice melts, and surface waters warm and sink until the water temperature at all depths reaches approximately 39Âº F. The sinking combined with wind mixing causes spring "turnover."
This describes the general principle; however, other factors (including climate and lake depth variations) can cause certain lakes to act differently.
