The water is brown in color, but it is clear. Sometimes in summer there are very large blooms of phytoplankton. In the middle of the lake, the bottom is quite hard. Large stones lying on the bottom, sunken trees and underwater meadows covering the bottom are ideal fishing grounds for many species of fish.
