    <edited to prevent faux paux>. I've gotten to around 65', but have heard rumors that it reaches 90' (I don't believe that it gets any deeper than 65', though).

    Vis seems to stay between 30'-40', but it can silt up quite quickly.

    What's wrong with giving the location?

    It's ok, I still don't know where it is!! Can someone let me know when you are going out there and maybe I can follow you???!!!! If you want, I can follow you blindfolded so as to not give up your secret location!! LOL

    Since the mods deleted my original reply to this, I'm unfortunately going to have to tone it down...

    Who is going to write you a parking ticket? Who is going to write you a trespassing citation? Who are the PITA residents going to call when they decide they don't want you at "their" lake? It ALL revolves around the Sheriff's Office because they are the only ones with any authority to enforce anything.

    And the Sheriff's Office needs to know if it is open or not... otherwise what are they going to do when they call up Parks & Rec and no one answers the phone? Just wing it? Flip a coin? Tell you it's closed when it's not just to be safe? I for one don't want law enforcement basing their decisions on guesswork and chance.

    Someone in that county needs to figure out if that lake is open or not, because I am sick of the constant questioning. It's ridiculous.

    Don't let your association with the police blind you.

    Probably got a speeding ticket when it was the cops' fault.

    I thought you all were talking about Lake Isis, sorry. That's what the coords are for. I haven't been there but I assume it's pretty much the same as Lake Denton. Good vis for a lake, but not really a fun dive. Some looking on Google Earth should turn up this Buck Lake pretty easily.

    As for why not to go back... there's no reason to. There's nothing to do. It's worth it to drive to a spring vs. driving to those lakes.
