Keystone, Sunday 2/17. Hazy 15 ft shallower, decent 20 ft at the end of the jetty and the barnacle reefs. Even better were the pleasantly cooperative currents and all the nasty crabs :eek: (Tiss the season for lithoid crabs lol)

Point Hudson, 2/10. Windy with 9 inches of snow. Churned-up shallow, ~20ft vis at depth -- very nice!

Got kinda beat-up with the wave action on entry but otherwise a good dive. 42F water temp, yowsa.

I was referring to the particulate in Hood Canal, which is definitely River runoff

What are these particulates, anyway? Not sure it's from runoff as we haven't had much lately.

Pt. Hudson yesterday was ~10-15ft, milky looking. All the way down.

Sund Rock on Monday 1-21 above 40 fsw was pretty bad, with tons of particulate in the water no doubt from the flooding rivers. The halocline was thick and 15' deep. Below 40 fsw viz was nice, 20-25', the place to spend as much of your time as your computer would allow!

Sunday 1/20/19. Keystone Jetty in the morning was 10 to maybe a dirty 15ft. Skyline in the pm was a silty 5 to barely 10 ft at the end of the flood. Deeper and farther out in the channel it teased 15ft luckily. Currents at both sites were running a bit stronger than the predictions. I blame the bloody wolf moon!

Sunday December 9th. Around Bowen Island in Howe Sound was a little gritty but still between 20 and 30+. Not bad at all.

Saltwater State Park was a good 30 ft this morning. It was my first visit there, and being able to see the structure clearly was pretty nice! Vis dropped a little on the 2nd dive at low tide but was still an solid 20+.
