O ok it got more windy as the day wore on….This is from the west side of WRL…a dock with 6 broken attachments…we couldn’t find the poles?
This was Grapevine Lake with out the wind in the early am and a swim support.
And this is Lake Ray Hubbard just a minute or two past daybreak.
You could say we get around…this was just Saturday….
Hope you can smile like this when paddling
If not…well just give us a shout…we will get you paddling with us and smiling too!

Has NOT landed…how you ask do we know this? Simple…we paddled past his house…or in this case a really really large nest
And on the other hand…we did see Mr Beaver…however you wouldn’t believe just how shy these guys are…..pop right out from the lodge and nay a splash as they slip below the waterline…leaving us with a “look there is the B….” and bubbles…
This was an interesting flood paddle weekend…for 5 plus days the water was about 2 feet higher…but we were able to do the campground loop but couldn’t quite make the marsh….
Because that 20 to 24 inches of water is not enough to overflow the east side between the river and the marsh.
We paddle close to the outflow of 2895 cfs…that’s the biggest tube coming out of the dam not full open about 1/2 way open
We also got the group photo very close to the outflow…check it out
We’re always excited to paddle LLELA…flood or not but this inbetween…it was tough!
Area of really pushy current
And almost lake like areas too
And of the birds…getting the easy meal from the large volume of water being released….Great Blues, snowy egrets, King Fishers, cormorants Cardinals, Crows, Red Tail Hawks, Turkey Buzzards, Ducks, Doves and more!
And what a great group too…they were happy hardy and adventurous paddlers!!!
Thanks for paddling with KPC!
At semi flooded LLELA!!!

Looks like a flood trip
So we’re out and back instead of down river.
Just fyi the current release is 3218 cfs and has been 3200 plus for the last few days.
Now you know what we know!

A difference in weather a month makes …sunny and a high of 79 light south wind and I guess it’s just easier to say perfect paddling weather!
