I have never been to Norfork, but I did see some in Grand Lake in NE Oklahoma, about the size of my thumbnail. I had a buddy of mine said he saw some a couple of weeks ago in Beaver Lake in Arkansas. I will be diving Beaver this weekend and I will have my camera with me. Maybe I can get a picture of one.

I saw one a few weeks ago diving in a quarry in norther NC. It was only the size of a nickel and by the time I could get my db's attention I couldn't find it again.

I've seen them in Table Rock Lake before, I think they're not that common but you will see them many places if you dive there often enough.

I saw one in Greers Ferry Lake earlier this year. They are hard to find, and I've never found 1 when I was looking for 1.

I saw three this weekend in a quarry in New Paris, OH during our dive club's annual pumpkin carving contest. I wasn't looking for them either. They are pretty cool, and seem pretty widespread in terms of geography based on posts here.

They are very small, and clear from my understanding. I haven't found one yet either. Supposed to be most active during the fall.

I have seen pics, so I know they exist.

It was the James Mac Robertson quarry, aka the Yancyville quarry. It's a private quarry that the PDRA runs.

Check with your LDS to see if they are a member. If they are it's only $35 a year to dive there. They have 2 other quarries as well, but it's my understanding that this is the best of the three.
