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.
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.
Possible parking/access point at the low-water crossing on the downstream side of CR 122 (beta needed.)
A low-water crossing and dam structure may pose a hazard at certain levels.
Public access/parking available at HYSA Texans Park at Riverwalk, downstream of the bridge on river right.
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.
Permits are not required for this reach.
<p>Putin directions: Take I35 North from Austin to Highway 79 Taylor Hutto exit. Take a right, go about 4 miles and take a right on CR 122. The bridge put in is right there.</p>
