I will be doing some fishing while we’re out but it’s going to be more for just hanging out and getting a paddling workout in a couple days a week. Also since I will be doing some fishing anyone have any reports for around here or ideas of where to go
A good paddle is the Brazos River below Lake Whitney. It's about 8 miles from the dam to Dick's who runs shuttles. During the Fall/Spring/Winter you can launch and paddle back upstream to the dam put in, but it's nearly impossible to do so during the summer because it's a hydro electric dam.
Cleburne State Park has a great clear water lake to paddle. Wheeler Branch in Glen Rose is another clear water lake that has an awesome fishery. There is a fee for non-county residence.
