My dive buddy and I set off for Stephens Gap area (point near the small island off shore) of Lake Broken Bow,Oklahoma yesterday morning. Traffic was lite out of Paris TX. and once in the park it was lite. A few campers and day picnics and swimmers along the shoreline. We observed a few small water craft and one or two pontoons. Having dove this area before we decided on several different routes of travel once we set out dive flag. #1 dive was to drop down to follow the bottom profile of from the point just NW of the island then hit the deeper tree line and go south to the island wall and do a tour of it prior the swimming back across the the point.....all went as planned and the trees were plentiful and very large! Nice rock outcroppings around and to the island. Saw several bass and craw fish, a few fishing lines and bait, couple water shoes and a plastic zipper topped shopping cart bag. #2 dive was very similar except we investigated the drop off on the SE corner of the island. Two great dives!!

Vis--- fair to very good
thermo--- warm water in the upper 20ffw (86f)
thermo at around 30ffw and another at around 60ffw with a third deeper.
dive 1 129ffw//48f//52min.
dive 2 122ffw//58f//74min.
