Blobs of algae? Jelly like substance in upland lake.

Observed: 16th April 2011 By: nightfly

There were thousands of blobs of this jelly like substance suspended in the shallow water at the edge of an upland lake last april.
Is it an algae?
There is a similar substance which oozes from grassy, tightly grazed slopes in the spring too, which makes for dangerous walking conditions!
