We dove under the Pope Creek bridge, where the underwater cleanup is done each September. As far as conditions went, The weather was great, sunny and warm. Ray was a little too optomistic with the 3 feet of viz, at 10 feet it was difficult for me to read my gauges, however the water temp was slightly warmer at 52 degrees. Neither Ray or myself made it below 20 feet where the water turned into black water diving. The lake level is about 12 feet higher than when we dove during the September cleanup, so we didn’t see much trash to pick up except a few beer bottles, and plastic bags. Enjoyed sandwiches during our surface interval. Had a few fishermen come into the cove, and saw one catch a nice trout. Cali (Jen’s new puppy) had the most fun with everything being a new experience. All in all had a great time enjoying the warm sun, and getting the scuba gear wet.
