The difference between a pond and a lake isn't just in their overal size. Lakes have what we call "thermoclines". A thermocline is a what separates the top and bottom of a lake.

In the summer, the top part (also called the epilimnion) of the lake is warm(ish) and the bottom part (also called the hypolimnion) is cold.In the winter, the bottom part of the lake is warm (or above 0ºc) and the top is cold.
