This dive falls into the category of my worst day diving is better than my best day working. Aurora is a pleasant little dive and an acceptable student checkout site. As Colorado dives go it is average. The bottom is very silty and vis can go to 0 in a second. In the deeper water the silt is black so we are talking about total blackout conditions. There is an airplane wreck marked with a buoy. Although there are fish in the resevoir I have never seen one while diving. Lots of crawfish and some of those babies are big so there's good eatin'. Make sure you have a fishing license. The beach is nice to set up and have a picnic lunch. Overall, I'd rather dive anywhere else, but since we're talking Colorado and there isn't much else, dive it and enjoy being underwater.
