Lake Stillhouse

Discussion in 'Texas Dive Destinations' started by Hawkeye Mark, Jun 4, 2017.

    have never been there. We were on a cruise to Bermuda last week from NY. I had been wanting to go there for some time. However the Americas Cup races are there in late May and June so there were no hotel rooms and I checked like six months ago. So we went on a cruise(not my first choice). They sailed from NY. 2 days to get there and three days there. Basically use the ship as a hotel. Anyway the one day they offered diving i went out with the ships operator(mainly because it left across from the ship and taxi fares to the operator recommended were really expensive)

    Anyway the dives were pretty good. While waiting for the last couple of divers to show there were two guys there with Lake Stillhouse Scuba. They own the dive shop at the lake near Belton. I told them I would try and make it up there this summer. If anyone else is interested let me know and we can figure out a weekend. My niece is presently stationed at Fort Hood and I need to get up and see her.

    I'd be interested. I suspect it will be like most lakes in Texas - 10' viz on a great day and 5' viz on others with a lot of mud, shallow plants, and striped bass and perch. But it's not in my logbook yet so I'm in.

    They said it was a typical Texas lake just like here. Their shop is on a floating platform. Thats one of the reasons I would like to go.

    Appears it might be a weekend only operation which is fine
