A few of us are considering doing a trip on the Colorado next Friday, putting in at Weberville, and taking out hwy 969 bridge. The river at Bastrop, is showing 1860 cf/s. Help! Give us a little coaching, please. How is that volume of flow to navigate, how are the camping sites, and is 2 nights on the river in that stretch a good fit.
That flow rate is a function of the rain we just had. Unless it rains a lot more, it will probably drop to a few hundred cubes by next week. That would make for a leisurely trip. The camp sites I have seen were nice. The guys at Cooks Canoes in Webberville used to do a little work on some of the islands that people frequently camp. Not sure if they still do.
OP I know from crossing the river in Austin every day it's pretty low and like the data shows it's not moving very fast. There will be lots of areas you'll have to drag your kayaks across a river rock bar or sand bar. Sounds like fun tho!
Weather guessers are saying next front (after Wednesday strong front) is next Tuesdayish (Nov 5th).
