Blue Green algae- need info
Went up to the bridge last night at hills creek and the algae was thick! Does anyone have advice? How does it affect fishing and swiming? Is the lake cleaner @ the dam? Will this week of extreme heat affect the water?
i belive you are not suppose to swim in it.
ya thats some nasty crap.. we was there on sunday near the bridge too.. i am sure there is something on it ...
somewhere in here try the search bar or go to Odfw , I think I saw something on there..yw
How long does the bloom last anyways
Usually lasts about 3 weeks, but sometimes can last longer, and sometimes last less time. I just checked it out, and there are way more lakes with it than I thought, a lot of new advisories, I only knew of until recently, dexter, odell and hills creek.
Good news is it's been lifted from Odell.
I thought people used to eat blue-green algae for health benefits..... :think:
They do actually, but it's a different species. There is both a harmless species, and then a varied species that excretes toxins...I had an article somewhere, but i am not finding it now, my google skills are failing.
