Clearwater Pond is nestled among low hills that are heavily forested with pines, spruce, fir, and cedar. The pond can be reached by a 10-mile walk from Attean. Clearwater is not very deep, but the average depth is high because the bottom drops sharply everywhere except in the shallow water area at the southwestern end. The water is clear and cold, but the oxygen is low below 25 feet. Trout would not be present in the deepest water in late summer.
I have a camp down the way from this lake. I have been meaning to get out on it in a boat and see what she has to offer. Anyone been out there with some success? I wonder if there are any trout holdovers?
The ranking score is used to determine how "popular" a trip or location is. It is calculated based off of a weighted average of the number of reviews and the user ratings. For example, a location with 2 reviews and an average rating of 5 will have a lower "ranking score" than one with 10 reviews and an average rating of 4. This is because even though the first location has a better average rating, it has not been reviewed as much as the second location, so it is not as "popular". In the future we may modify the ranking score to take in additional factors, such as the number of views, comments, and photos.
