STARRY STONEWORT UPDATE August 3, 2021.
An aquatic plant survey conducted at the lake's access sites did not find any new populations of starry stonewort at any launch sites as of the end of July. Several new populations of starry stonewort were found in the general area of the the "deep water" site located to the east of Trinke. Whether these sites are new or were missed last year is unknown. During the last week of July a six man dive team hand pulled starry stonewort from the "deep water" site and areas east were starry stonewort was identified as being present in the aquatic plant survey. A small amount of starry stonewort was also pulled from just outside of the Trinke lagoon.
The Dive Guys with an afternoon's worth of hand pulled starry stonewort.

How to stay safe this summer
Swimmer's itch is caused by flatworm larvae that can unintentionally latch onto human skin when looking for a waterfowl host and cause irritation and itchiness. They like warm water at around 72°F. When your skin dries, the larvae will burrow into the skin and eventually die, but this typically results in some uncomfortable itchiness.
WAYS TO TREAT
Don't scratch! - Use an antihistamine lotion - Don't panic, swimmers itch is rarely serious and will pass in a couple days
