    Would someone explain water clarity to me. I think I know what clear & muddy mean but how do you judge stained, etc.

    Thanks, Jim

    I think this is really subjective and it could totally depend on what fishery you’re talking about. Since you posted this within in the Percy Priest thread, I’ll make a general comment base on that reservoir. Keep in mind, this would be different depending on what end of Percy you fish too but here are my two cents (in terms of visibility):

    Clear: 4+ feet
    Stained: 1.5-4 feet
    Muddy: 0-1.5 feet
