    dear friends, i'm going to Gruener see this weekend. who can tell me whats the situation there right now? water level is ok?
    also, I'd like to visit other lakes nearby - Atten see and Wolfgang see. I know most diving shops are closed yet, but maybe, you know someone who can help - show diving locations etc. I have car, compressor, drysuit, can travel around

    Hi coolplay,

    It is the Fernsteinsee/Samarangersee, www.fernsteinsee.at
    I dive those lakes every year, especially the Samarangersee has about 60m visibility.

    regards,
    RolMar
