Default Cyanobacteria?

When I went to swim today, I noticed a lot of flakes in the water column and wonder if it is cyanobacteria. I wasn't willing to risk swimming in it and hope it disappears. Can anyone confirm that from the picture? I'd normally notify DES but found it after hours.

The Lake Winnipesaukee Association put out a warning recently for cyanobacteria in Mirror Lake and also seen at Pine Island, Bear Island and
Wolfeboro Bay. Perhaps it is more wide spread.

White dots in the photo are more green in person and are distributed throughout the visible water column.
