I apologize for not posting sooner, i thought this was a dead thread. Now that I see people are still reading this... well... here's a quick
I did actually dive Rock Lake and unfortunately did not find a thing (not even a beer can). We checked the area I was told and found it was so
shallow, we couldn't observe much. Water temp of 42F, max depth for the dive of 12 feet. Really boring dive. Good visibility (~30ft), but since it
had been a long time since I last used my drysuit, I had some proverbial rust to shake out. All-in-all, nothing to report. My dive buddy forgot his
camera, but the only thing worth taking a picture of would have been zebra mussels.
Afterwords, I told my contact (who "knows" where to look) about the dive. Apparently we didn't dive out far enough to get to the deeper water
where the structures are (of course). Also, as we were getting ready to get in, 3 different people approached us and told us of 3 different places to
try (north end, south end, west side... north of the marsh, etc). Yet nobody knew EXACTLY for sure where to go.
Right now my dive buddy is viewing the Great Barrier Reef, so it may be a bit before I get another chance to dive.
Thanks for reading this, though.
