Dove here again 8/17/2002. Water was even colder 46F! Vis was gone and ocean swell was up! The vis was about 3-5' maybe. Dove from the park entrance since I had a new diver with me and the swell out at the tower was really big! We dove on slack, current was managable did some hunting and crabbing. Didn't get any fish and the crab my buddy picked up were all too small. I can't believe how small all the fish are on the north jetty compared to Newport. The small fish in Newport between the fingers are bigger than what I've been seeing in Barview. My buddy and I also found a large piece of an antanna tower or outrigger from a boat on the bottom. Anyway a pretty boring, cold dive, but at least I was diving!!
