DId you know lakes age from young to middle age to old age?  After reading the following guess our lake's age.

Young lakes are oligithropic (young) with clear water and

little algae.  Middle age lakes have the best fisheries,

good structure and a variety of wildlife.  They are

classified as mesothropic.  Old age (euthropic) lakes

have algae blooms, many aquatic plants and murky

water.

Have you guessed our lake's age.  Yes, it is mesothropic,

the best all around lake age.
