Seldomseen,

From my experience with turn over in lakes, the yukkie stuff from the bottom comes to the top. I see a lot of floating green stuff at the surface and down a short distance.

Is this the turn over you mention?

Not sure if all of them turn over like that but, it sure seems like some do. Reservation Lake comes to mind.

There is at least a point where some lakes get turbid and it precipitates out then clears. Hopefully someone else has some better insight that that. If you can catch that window before the lid goes on, that is some of the best fall fishing.

Seldomseen,

Many years ago, I was camping and fishing on the Grand Mesa in western Colorado. Some of the lakes were turning over to the point where they were unfishable and you could see green vegetation making its way down the outlet streams. Not all were that way. We decided to fish one small lake with turnover. We did catch a few but for me, I'll take clear water.

Turnover

Mike....Brian Chan told me long ago that turnover occurs when the lake water hits 39 degrees. The colder water is denser/heavier and sinks to the bottom, pushing the warmer water to the top. It sometimes brings debris along with it.

Thanks John. I suppose Brian Chan knows a thing or two about fishing the water column.

So I guess it comes back to the lakes that stratify.
