This lovely lake has pretty much cornered the market on blue. I think it has to do with its depth. At any rate, it's well worth a visit.

Wonderful fishing for bass and trout...The best place for trout is close to the dam. Trolling at about 90 feet. Bass are next to the bank and right now the bite is hot. .

Weather your houseboats get, skiing/wakeboarding/tubing, floating or fishing, there's plenty of lake to do it in. Being I live here and spend a lot of summer days floating and boating on the lake it's always a good time.
