>> Depth

  I have sorted the lakes into four categories of depth. Deep lakes are almost always quality lakes. They have the volume to filter sediments and dilute pollutants. More information is provided below.

    Average Lake Depth

    Very Deep

      Lakes with an average depth of 30 feet or more. The deeper the lake the cleaner the water is. Sediments can settle, once down in oxygen free water they remain settled. Fish waste and other pollutants are diluted with the higher volume of water.


      Lakes with an average depth of 20 to 30 feet. Lakes in this depth range are deep enough to eliminate worries of a rampant takeover of weeds. They are very clean and often have good underwater structural variance that makes for good fishing.


      Lakes with an average depth of 7 to 20 feet. Lakes with these depths often have a bigger area of weeds along the shorelines and cleaner water in the deeper holes. These lakes can also be good fishing lakes.

    Very Shallow

      Lakes with an average depth of less than 7 feet. These lakes have more weed growth and there is potential for the whole lake to be overtaken by weeds. The lower volume of water also makes the water dirtier by nature.
