I can attest that while this lake might be oligotrophic (or at least it was in the 1970's), it did have quite a fish population and was well worth the trouble to haul a boat back several miles from the road (white line).
About that time, the lake was still turbid with algal growth, although efforts to stem the flow of nutrients into the lake were beginning to have an effect.
Lake Annie is one of the cleanest of the sinkhole lakes in Florida.
