Cooler, wetter summer means reduced habitat quality for aquatic plants and fish

IPFW Environmental Resources Center

Lower average temperatures and increased rainfall compared to last summer have resulted in reduced water clarity in many local lakes. In addition to other factors, rains wash sediment into aquatic systems, clouding the water. This reduces the amount of sunlight available to aquatic plants and makes it more difficult for some fish to see while feeding. See the whole story from Indiana DNR:
