clear, stained, muddy??? how to tell

Recommended Posts

I fish in Ohio at three main lakes, Tappan Lake, Clendening Lake, and Salt Fork State Park Lake. The closest and the one I fish the most is Tappan Lake. How can one tell if the water is stained, muddy, or clear??? I have been reading and still do not know how to tell the difference. Any help would be welcome and appreciated. Thanks.

I don't know if there is a rule about this or not.  Where I fish it is very clear most of the time and I can see the bottom in 10 fow.  When I can only see 3 or so feet down I called it stained.  Muddy to me would be not seeing a chartruse spinnerbait more than a few inches down.

That's pretty close to my rule of thumb as well

If you understand,....it's clear

If it's white linen and that's red wine..,...it's stained

If it's going in circles to the right,.....IT'S MUDDY!!!  ;D ;D
