Evaluation

*Average:    2.01
My buddy and I dive here all the time… because where else are you going to dive in central Texas? The vis here is very poor. There are some sunken things and beginner depths that make for good practice. The real attraction is the pecan grove at 90-120ft. The trees and low vis are very disorienting, so make sure you have the correct experience, and a few dives in this lake before you head down there. You will need flashlights below 50ft. As an intermediate step there is a nice limestone shelf at around 80ft (head down the chain until you get to the pinto).
