This lake is nearby so I've fished it plenty. For the 3rd year in a row a crew has been sent to apply weed control. They spray the hemlock around the shoreline. Fair enough. Those plants grow tall and block the view. Apparently, there is also something applied in the water which kills the weed beds. I haven't personally witnessed this but was told, (the first year they did this), that a crew member was in the water applying some weed control. I believe it because the weed beds that used to dominate this lake have not been present since. This has ruined the bass fishing during the heat of the summer. Not only that but since they've applied the stuff this year the bass fishing has abruptly changed from very good to very poor. Up until the day the crew was there, we were catching fish. We haven't caught a single bass since. I've done ok going after other species but zero bass. Does anyone know why they do this?
