Abstract

Lake Macbride, an artificial lake located in Johnson county, Iowa, a few miles north of Iowa City, was established by building a dam below the junction of two small creeks. The resulting basin is somewhat V-shaped with approximately 8 miles of shoreline. The lake bed is for the most part loess excepting a few small sandy areas and the alluvial deposits next to the old creek channels. The shoreline toward the dam is rather abrupt, the south shore being of the exposed limestone type. With few exceptions the rest of the shoreline is either loess or loess-capped. The border lands of the lake are still mostly wooded, the cleared portions having been pastured or cultivated.
