    Well, we had the pleasure of being the first divers of the 2010 season. The rangers were very interested in us and the conditions, but they were polite and professional.

    Dive report: Colorado diving at its most typical. Cold and murky. I would say vis was 6' and the temps were 46 deg at the plane.

    The crawdads were still sleeping and I didn't see a fish.

    Lots of organic crud at the bottom... very very silty.

    Give this site a month to settle if you ask me.

    Well, just to add to BigBubbaJ's dive report, I'll say that in spite of wind (fair bit), current (little), and a stuck inflater valve (mine) we had a good chilly 23 minutes of bottom time, with 4-6' vis.

    I will say that I learned a number of things diving with J, the most important of which is, don't be afraid to learn how to field strip your gear.

    I don't know much about local lakes, but this one needs to settle.

    It has been windy of late, and that is likely the root of your poor vis. I've done Aurora this time of year, and had 15' of vis, so I blame Bubba.. I mean the wind!
