I went scuba diving here on 6/15/2018. Average viz: 31-35ft/9-11m. Water temp: 56-60°F/13-16°C.
Dive 1, took a 320 heading to the wall and kicked along the top looking for the small canyon as the wall ends. Didn’t find it. Dive 2, took a 320-330 heading to the wall and went over and to the door. At the door, followed the line that heads west and found a sunken small fishing boat (15’ maybe). Followed the line back and explored the north side of the wall before heading back and locating the rock runway and table. Also heard there is a Jason Vorhees manikin to the right of the table, but we were unable to locate it this time.

I went scuba diving here on 1/5/2018. Average viz: 5-10ft/2-3m. Water temp: 50-55°F/10-13°C.
Took a 0 degree heading off the float and found that someone laid out a runway made of rocks. At the end of that was a dive flag and the table with a skeleton sitting at it and hanging skepetons in the tree. Continued to the wall and descended right on top of the door, which someone now put a neon yellow line on that continues out past the wall. We followed that, hit the mining car track and kept following it past that. It led us to another smaller wall that we were already at the bottom of, which we explored before turning around.

Went diving here on 3/25/2017. Average viz: 10-15 ft at best. Water surface temp 61°F, no thermocline but chilly deeper: 53°F at 60 ft. Lake about 94% full - edge of water at most 10-15 ft from parked cars. Lots of floating debris at shoreline (branches, bits of wood) due to previous runoff.
Saw a few good-sized fish ~10-12" both in mid-water & near the bottom (~20-30 ft). One definitely seemed to show "nesting behavior" - protecting a rocky area of the bottom roughly 6x6’ - single fish would circle my buddy & I, then stopped & stared at me maybe 1 ft from my mask, then would circle once or twice, stop & stare again for at least 30 sec. Circled us again at least once more as we swam away. "Yes we rude humans will leave your nursery alone!" LOL

Bright and early night dive for first dive. Visibility is opening up nicely despite the water level still being low. Not many fish, 1 carp on each dive and a good size school of shiners at about 110 feet on the second dive. Surprisingly, not many divers were trying to get there first thing in the morning.

Almost no critters to see in hot summer weather, viz very poor in summer due to prolific algae. Great example of a thermocline - very drastic in summer. Find the sudden dropoff to go deeper.

Went diving on 8/13/2016, in the water just after 11am. Viz: 5-7 ft down to ~35 ft. Water temp down to ~35 ft: 83-89°F. Water temp below thermocline, below ~35-45 ft: 73-78°F. Viz below thermocline: 10 ft at most. Saw maybe 5 fish total after 3 dives, including a sunfish ~9-10" long at about 20-25 ft, 2 unidentified fish at least 12-15" long at about 25-35 ft. Saw the table & chairs with the fake skeleton ~25 ft, grandfather clock at ~52 ft. Dive buddy found a pair of sunglasses in very good condition.
