Black Lake is wide in some places such as at the Hwy 9 bridge and tight in other places because of the growth of Cyprus trees. There's channels cut into the lake that allow clearance for boats. Boats stay in the channels or risk grounding the bottom of the boat on tree stumps. The aquatic vegetation such as moss, seaweed and algae are also visible at surface level.
