We are in our rainy season across E. Texas. I consider Troup to be in this area. The first thing I thought of was rain washing in from an area that has Iron ore or iron ore mining. I don't see much iron ore mining these days due to the slowdown of drilling across E. Texas where iron ore is used as a base for building drill sites. It usually lies close to or on the grounds surface. It may also be due to rain washing in some of our red clays that are now suspended in the water.

Do not judge me by the politicians in my City, State or Federal Government.
Very odd looking. I have seen something like this once in person and once here at PB where saturated surface ground water was seeping into the pond. In these cases, the water at the shore was clearer than the bulk of the pond water, being filtered by the surrounding soils.
Your pond's condition far exceeds the above possibility due to the fact that is extends far out into he pond and appears to be coming from one side not the perimeter.
One other guess might be a turnover of the pond moving a bloom or murky waters around. Are the temps conducive to a turnover there?
