Great diving all year long! Power plant heated lake offers a wide range of aquatic life, above average tempatures, and good times. Pick a spot on the lake... or dive at the boat launch. Visit the boneyard of uncut trees at 35ft.

Dive here quite often using private oilfield road. Great vis and usually above average tempatures. Lots or fish to see and they are not scared of visitors. Vist the "boneyard" as we call it... the section of the lake that wasnt cleared prior to filling. Its usually a great dive and not to far from anyone in located in East Texas. Let me know if i can help set something up.
