What would you think about going up river this time,not all the way to the island but close? Then just an easy downstream paddle when your tired and leaving.
Up river starting where, The Falls or Highway 7 bridge?
The Brazos in Waco was running 19,000 cfs a couple of days ago after the last rain when we got 4 to 7 inches. Today, it's dropped to 7,750. It will be a while before its around 2,000.
As far as changing the rivers, I read the other day that they estimated 3 trillion gallons of water had run down the rivers of Texas to the Gulf after the rains. I don't know how much went down the Brazos, but it would be a bunch since its one of the larger ones, and it has certainly been rolling through Waco. I've seen it a whole lot higher, but after years of pretty dry weather, this was needed and nice.
