What's in my Lake?

This smudgy stuff (underlined in small screen snip) appears sometimes on lakes, and usually covering much smaller areas. It does not hinder or alter the game in any way I can tell, and while game is playing, it doesn't seem to be visible. It seems to be visible on map overviews only. I am posting this in case it has happened to anyone else, or if anyone knows what it is. This one seems quite a bit larger than I've seen before.

I've had similar happen in small maps with lakes, it's just odd, figured it was just a graphical glitch.  If I see it again, I'll come back and post :)

In my uneducated opinion xD, I think it's a shadow of the shallow part of the waterway. I've seen it a few times in my games and I believe it's just the way the mini-map tries to illustrate the shallow part of the river/lake but the water ripples make it appear dappled rather than solid. Its placement on the mini-map matches the shallow areas you can just see on the river in the game window.
