It's that time of year. The Golden Algae bloom. Totally sucks. It is killing the fish at Possum Kingdom right now too. Kills the vis, the fish, everything.

Bryan,
I would not dive in these conditions. I love lake Murray. I love Marietta Landing. I diver there every chance I get 12 months out of the year. Trust me though. I have gone diving in conditions like this. I love the water; but simply is not any fun when you can't see your gauges 6 inches in front of your mask. You have to be able to see your gauges; no matter how much you like muck diving.

P.S. I am not suggesting that you can't see your gauges right now. I honestly don't know what the current vis is; but if you can't see your gauges, it is just no fun.

Well, I'm happy to report that if there was a fish kill, it may be over now... didn't see any dead fish anywhere, and there wasn't any stink. Water levels seemed higher than I've seen in awhile, and there were a ton of fish seemingly doing great greeting us at the dive platforms and the boats. The vis was meh... ranging from 3-15 feet. It started to get dark green at around 40 feet, so we hung around the shore for the most part.

The fish did seem hungry--they were happily munching my dive buddy's ears.
