#1 - Cliff Lake
Nice area and not many people. Never seen any other divers just kayaks, canoes, and drift boats. Pretty cold most of the year but usually warm in July and August. Very easy access and not very deep. From the parking lot go into the lake and head south until you reach the about the middle of the lake were it gets more shallow. You can also dive right from the put in.
#2 - Old Canyon Ferry Dam and power plant
The old Canyon Ferry Dam was built in 1896 and formed a reservoir known as Lake Sewell. The old 7,500-kilowatt power plant was completed in 1898. It was dismantled prior to the completion of the new Canyon Ferry Dam and power plant with the remnants having been inundated and Lake Sewell becoming part of the new reservoir. This is a difficult, deep dive, and should not be attempted without local, knowledgeable guidance. The dam and power plant are located about 1-1/2 miles upstream from the existing Canyon Ferry Dam.
#3 - Kim's Marina
Site often used for local club activities Access is via Private property of Kim's Marina or boat.
