Commentsscattered, see map; Surface water temp 25 C, Weather calm, sunny. Launched boat at 9-Mile Park launch and inventoried several miles of shoreline, mapping flowering rush. Found patchy distribution, some with quite a few plants (see maps). Very dense thinleaf pondweed in water about 4 to 10 ft deep. Did not do detailed plant inventory for native species. Less yellow floating heart in launch area, and boat lane is cut through.
