    Was (4/9th) 47 degrees at 55ft and 51 degrees at 27 feet.

    Sorry, I neglected to answer your post earlier because I assumed someone who had been there more recently would have posted by now.

    We were there on Saturday and it was still 50 on the bottom. Cold even in a dry suit. I have no idea how all those students dive there in wet suits????:shakehead:

    I'll be diving there on the 15th for rescue diver training. Hopefully it warms up.

    According to the new May issue of their newsletter, it's about 60 at the surface; 50 on the bottom.

    50 is cold yes, but not cold in a drysuit. I guess temp effects everyone differently. you will also feel colder if you are unser stress or anxious so just relax... I did a dive in Lake Milbrook last December in a 7ml with hood and gloves and did not bother me much. I was comfortable diving at rawlings this past weekend in my 7ml and the temps were high 50s
