    Paul and I decided to check out Chilliwack lake last Sunday. Here is a short video:

    Nice one Dale. How much ambient light did you have at 105'?

    There was enough light to be able to see clearly and shoot the video. I used my GoPro mounted to a UK light cannon but it only came into effect on close ups (and not to well as one can see when I shot the freshwater sponge on the tree). I did not have a diffuser on it and it created a white spot. The visability was similar to that which I have experienced on a medium good day diving the Saskatchewan in Nanaimo.

    I just return from Pavillion lake which has the same kind of vis but I think Chilliwack was better at depth. Video to follow and I did not use a light there either.

    Thanks for that Dale. Have you ever heard of Johnson Lake British Columbia Fishing Adventures . We just returned from a few days diving there and I would say it has vis comparable to Pavilion. Chilliwack lake looks intriguing....I hope to check it out some day.
