Evaluation

*Average:    3.30
I have dived this site more than 250 times, all times of the year. Visibility is best in the spring just before the algae bloom and in the fall just after the algae bloom. All sorts of fish life can be found -- trout, perch, pickerel, bluegill, bass -- but the real treat is the freshwater eels, all female, which some come into freshwater after being born in the Sargasso Sea. The quarry also has the usual things placed in it to interest divers: boats, fire truck, airplane, an old wooden sailing ship, a railroad caboose, a milk truck and several cars.
