Lake County Record-Bee

Clear Lake experiencing phenomenal weed growth

samiam it is clear that locals only is saying exactly that and it is true. Algae was an issue then but the weeds weren't. We didn't have to clear the prop of weeds then. It is true that leaving out of Corinthian Bay we would sometimes have to motor out quite a way from shore to find water less filled with algae and when we changed out of our suits we would find our bodies peppered with it; but weeds were a Highland Springs thing not a Clear Lake problem Cite a source. [quote]"Biolo gists say the weeds have been here since the beginning." [/quote]Is insufficient evidence. Also misleading since yes, weeds and lakes go hand in hand, but the weed "Problem " is relatively new. Anyone who has lived here AND used the lake regularly over the last several decades will tell you that. Personally I am inclined to go with the primary source here. As for the DDT comment, well that was just silly.  (Jun 26, 2010 | post #20)
