I totally agree. I looked at the lake and was defiantly concerned if with all the weeds and nothing really dug out. I figured they are smarter than me and was hoping it will turn out to be a beautiful non skummy lake with decent panfish in it. The roads... beautiful...the actual lake...not what I expected it to look like. Not even close.
I drive thru and the roads are really nice. I was hoping to see a noticeably deeper lake but, the dry lakebed was filled with 4 foot tall weeds and didnt look like it had been dug that much deeper. Pretty disappointing. I doubt the fishing will be any better than it was previously. There was a dike going across which made it look like they are planning on having a place for the silt to fill in before it makes it to the main lake. But, this makes the overall lake size smaller IMO.
Most of the BIG work has been completed. new road, rehab-ed lake, lots of changes. like be filled over the winter if it ever rains again. good time to go see what the new lake looks like.
