Water Levels

Water levels typically follow rainfall patterns during periods of wet weather and drought. From these data, one can get a picture of how recent flood or drought events compare to historical data. Learn more about lake water levels »

Bathymetric Maps and Depth Information

These are the latest available contour maps of the lake's bottom. These maps can be used to determine where "holes" (deep spots) exist on the lake bottom. Such areas are often productive for fishing. Learn more about bathymetric maps »

    Additional Hydrology and Geology Information

    The Lake Region Classification System is a tool used for grouping lakes based on similarities in physiography, geology, soils, hydrology, water chemistry, vegetation, and climate. It was created from a cooperative effort involving the United States Environmental Protection Agency, the Florida Department of Environmental Protection, and researchers at the University of Florida's Department of Fisheries and Aquatic Sciences. There are a total of 47 Lake Region groups. These are used to provide a framework of the different types of lakes in the state so that management plans can be developed for groups of lakes with similar characteristics.

    The lake region this lake is located in is:

    Kissimmee/Okeechobee Lowland (Region 7535)

    This region includes the Kissimmee Valley, a lowland with prairie type grasslands, flatwoods, and some swamp forest. The regional boundaries also enclose most of the Fisheating Creek drainage to capture the hydrologic inputs to Lake Okeechobee. The wet prairies of this region are seasonally flooded, and dry prairies on seldom-flooded flatlands have mostly been converted to pasture. Lakes are alkaline, eutrophic, and colored.
