    What a nice winter to dive the river! There's almost no ice, water temp is around 34F, viz is nice at about 30 feet but could be better for this time of year.

    So surprise the viz is so bad. I would expect better this time of the year. Am I wrong?

    normaly, in the winter, the viz is better. last year in january, we really saw the lock 21, from one end to the other. cave clear water.

    but this year, maybe with the fact there was no ice, the viz is realy down.

    but if a saw is needed, chances are the water won't be that "cold"
