I believe that you are asking about lake turn over. The answer is the different temperatures of the water at different levels.
The water in a lake or pond is at different temperatures at different depths at different times of the year. When water is at its densest 39º F (4º C) it sinks and water that was below it rises. There is a full description of the event in the link below.
