Viz was less than a foot. At 12 feet it was less than an inch! The power station was puping and this actually causes a current towards the north side of the lake. The water was warm temp between 86 and 88 depending in the computer we were looking at.

We camped out there the 3rd weekend last year and had a great time, but it got a little windy on sunday. If youre bored, you should come up.

We went on 5/3/2014 and vis was pretty bad. Locals said that it was at its worse and usually is much better. We believe the lake is turning, so a couple of weeks and it should clear up. 175yds from the boat launch, it was still only about 8-10ft deep but tempature was in the high 80’s. 93 on the surface. Beautiful area... we should have taken the boat. We will try it again before making a final ruling.
