Dam Release Rates and Current River Flow Conditions

Current River Conditions in Texas

Dam Release Rates and Current Flow Rates

The speed of Texas rivers is controlled by many different factors, including recent rainfall, water releases from upriver dams, and flows from springs.

These factors can change, and different flows make for different kinds of trips. A high flow may be too fast for floating, but perfect for rafting trips.

Check the flow before you arrive, and call a local outfitter to confirm.

Family rafting trips can be a lot of fun. Make sure everyone can swim, because though water sports are fun, rivers can be unforgiving with the inexperienced. Consider a guided trip for first timers.
