Commentscloudy, raining. Most of littoral zone dominated by Egeria (5 m no plants). Deeper areas with open water. Culvert is the outlet to a slough then the Chehalis River. Would be easily screaned. Bill says the Egeria is more prevalent this year than last. Did not use the rake much to sample (in a canoe)
