River Description


Another play run below Round Rock, which can be combined with the stretch from Veterans Park Dam to CR 122 for a total of 8 miles.  Texas Whitewater describes some "small ledge drops" and "nice waves."  More specific beta needed.

Distances and gradient measured using GIS tools in 2015.

Cautions:

The ledge below CR 122 and Dave's Rock below 685 change character with very little change in water level.  6 inches is a big change for these features, and they need to be scouted before playing.  Both features are great play spots at various levels but can also change quickly.

Summary of Gauge Readings

Visual scouting info:

If the water is at the low water crossing at CR 122, it is floatable.  If it's making a wave there, it should be fun, and if it's way above it, it should be a blast.

Beta needed to correlate visual scouting info to actual flows at the Kenney Fort Blvd gauge.  The listed range of flows is an uneducated guess, since the gauge is new.

County to Vote to Extend Closure on Guadalupe Tonight (TX)

Jason Robertson

The Comal County Commissioner's Court is taking measures that will restrict access to the Guadalupe River indefinitely. AW's primary objective on the Guadalupe is to restore access as soon as possible and to make sure that boater access does not impede on-going rescue and recovery efforts.
