    Beautiful spot tucked up in the NW corner of the lake. We anchored in very thick mud and pulled back into a small lagoon with two lines ashore (with chain ends of chafe protection as the rocks are sharp). Settled at 7m depth and the lagoon stretched behind us with continuing depth for quite a way. Lake water is brackish and refreshing to swim in, although visibility is poor, and has thermal activity somewhere down below as the water temperature gets much hotter as you dive down. Beautiful estuary to the NW which you can SUP/ Kayak up. Brimming with wildlife along the shoreline and in the reeds (storks, swans, frogs etc.). Well protected from most winds. Only potential wind issue would be a strong SE where fetch would build across the lake. You can also anchor and swing in mud at 8-10m in the river.
