Marl Lake in Montcalm County Michigan is located in between Vestaburg and Edmore on M-46. Some people call it the green lake. I have dropped anchor in the middle for over 15 years and it always stops at 90 ft. deep. It is spring-fed and temps are approximately 45 degrees at 30ft. deep. Don't plan on diving deeper without a dry suit. Boating is permitted but one must be able to carry their boat approximately 50 ft. from the parking lot down a small hill to the lake. The shoreline is made up of Marl and almost impossible to wade in without sinking to your knees immediately. There is one small patch of solid ground located at the common launch site. Don't step off it or you will get messy. I have caught pike, large mouth bass, crappies, sunfish and rainbow trout. Most years the trout is stocked; good food for the pike so they rarely bite. Marl Lake is a challenge to fish. There are monsters in there, (I have seen them) but they are difficult to catch.
