I have always fished Anderson lake over in Jefferson county but the last few years it has been getting this toxic algae in it latter in the summer. Now it’s won’t be opened at all along with Leland and Gibbs lakes. Somebody said it was due to climate change but I don’t see how that could have anything to do with it since the weather has been cool. Any ideas?
Here’s an article that explains what they know about the algae in Anderson Lake. It is likely itrogen or phosphorous entering the lake that is fueling the blooms. Two dogs died drinking the water in 2006.
