Black mud and minnows
Do clams live in a lake? Maybe it’s oysters. Maybe they’re the same thing. Marley Compton is pushing mud out of the way, forming holes full of black water. She gently lowers her minnows into the murky water, then she scoops them out and puts them back into their live tank. Amanda Matney wades out almost to her knees to find “caramel and fudge” rocks. They are two-toned. Black and brown. There’s some excitement that one of the girls found a sea cucumber, but after some discussion, that claim seems highly unlikely. Their hands are covered in black mud and their feet stick as they walk along the receding shoreline on the west side of Lake Hefner.
