Evaluation

*Average:    2.63
I have dove here the last two years probably 80 times 12 months a year. The visibility varies from 10 to 100 feet. Depending if you are by docks 4, 5, or 6 when OWS classes are being held or if you dive in January and February with the viz 75 to 100 ft. There are a lot of sunken things to see: helicopter, airplane, boats, car, truck, tubes to swim through. Many, many trout and if you are lucky you will see 5 to 6 foot long Paddlefish and there is one or two Sturgeon. In the Winter the water is generally 36 to 39 F. In the Summer 40 F at 100 ft to 75 in the shallow areas by the docks. There is a place for handicap access. Watch out for the stairs leading to the docks they can be extremely slick so hold onto the handrails. You can dive 365 days a year & in the Summer you can get air fills.
