    Default The lake turned orange.....

    Why would a lake turn orange? It was most predominent in deeper water. Less as the water got shallow to 6 inches. No pollen on the shore. Happened in more than one place. Gone the next day. Lake turnover? Underwater vegetation? Here is a pic.



    Thanks,
    Mike
