    We are thinking about heading out tomorrow. It's kind of a coin toss right now because we have had heavy rain all week, so I'm pretty sure the visibility will be marginal.

    We were at Table Rock and Norfork Lake yesterday (No diving, moving the boat from TR to Norfork). We talked to divers at both locations and they said conditions were very good last week, but this weeks of rain has cut viz down considerably at both locations. With that said they said it is still okay diving. Temps are a little warmer than expected. Nobody could give us a definite temp, but said not as cold as you would think. Some diving without gloves, but still needed the hood.

    Not Beaver, but in the area.

    made 2 dives today. vis about 15 ft in spots lake a little high due to rain. saw more big fish shallow around 30 ft then I ever have before.

    good size stripers and walleye. saw some of those huge hellbenders again.

    62* on surface 53* at 1st thermocline.

    how come nobody told me how nice a drysuit is? I think that's my new suit all the time.

    not sure why I'm thinking these are called hellbenders when that's a salamander but oh well.
