check water levels at lake Barnett prior to attempting to tube or kayak this river as it is very
poorly kept and heavily filled with debris ranging from tires to steel cables and wire fences.
Average depth of river is approximately 1 foot deep with sections that go up to 12 feet deep Highly
suggest running this river when it is full and flowing rapidly as it EXTREMELY dangerous to
inexperienced tubers and kayaks when the water levels are low.
