    Hey! Glad you're back in the water, Sea Princess. Ol' Whiskers the catfish has been asking about you. He's that big ugly devil lurking in and around the christmas trees waiting for a tasty morsel to happen by.

    According to the Waddell Dam Operations website the lake level is at 1665' of elevation, 65% full. That's up about 3' from last weekend.

    I'm a Canadian diver who's going to be in the Phoenix area from Dec. 29th - Jan 11th (or so) and would love to meet up with some local divers to get a couple dives in at Lake Pleasant. John @ Academy of Scuba was kind enough to suggest I check here to see if I could make any friends :D

    So, are Phoenicians as nutso as the rest of the world, and have New Year's Eve dives?

    Just bought a drysuit and lost any sense . . . that should last until my first dive in frigid waters!

    :lol:

    Tied up New Years day but the 2nd is looking good. I usually try to dive with the Scubateer's but that won't happen this year. Vista Point with some of my best dive buddies is a definate possibility. Maybe I'll have my side mounts worked out by then??????
