What is this?

I went fishing in a pond in PA and I found these plants. Any ideas what they are? I'm thinking cabomba is in there, there's one other I'm not sure about.

It's a Myriophyllum (aka parrot's feather) of some sort. Maybe M. heterophyllum, but a closeup and leaf detail would be necessary to get an ID. It looks like there's some Potamogeton with it in the last photo.
