Lake water level down about 20'. I did notice the bouys arround the perimeter of the dive area are all there and even the black pipe has been reinstalled, but only one bouy left in the dive area and it's attached to the sailboat. Looks like they are in the process of restoring the dive area.
First dive to 110' from the airplane down the wall going east about viz 15' temp 77 degrees to about 95' thermocline and layer of silt to about 103' after that it opened up viz as far as the light would go, Temp 69 degrees
Second Dive to 87' going to the dam viz 12' to 15' temp 77 degrees.

I went on 10-11. Vis was 10-15 or so. We went to the "swimming area" and to the north of the area. Down as far as 75, our lowest water temp was 75, the thermocline must have dropped. We did two AIR tanks with an hour SI. I just wore a shorty and was just beginning to chill a little after an hour and a half in the water.
