LLELA trip report

August 24, 2021 by mike swope
The big campsite

Yes is was hot let’s get that out of the way!

But we were excited to get on the river as our last outing was July 2019

The island from upstream

So several near 100% blockages from trees that are new from the floods and weather.

The 1st tree rapid just past the RR Bridge is a real tester…you have to go left and you have to turn soon after the drop….the bad part is the current tries to push you right at the very last second!

Mile 2 and 3 are at least double the amount of trees from a year ago and even with a low flow rate of 230 cfs the new river bank and river bottom are pushy from the current.

We has a lot of fallen trees too and several that when they do fall are going to be bank to bank… looking like some chainsaw work down the line

Mile 4 5 and 6 were the most like the old river from 2019…easy flow Still some trees but easy to navigate and lots of shade.

And speaking of shade we has lots at the shale beach….in fact we let those inner kids come out and play.

After a brief float with out the kayaks we loaded back up and did the final leg of the river and it too was slightly different but still familiar.

The most wonderful news…there is an awesome new takeout that work for paddlers of all abilities…..even kayakpower abilities!

Just a friendly reminder we will be on the San Marcos river in September…got to pay the rent and then back to LLELA and the Eco Tour in October November and close out 2021 in December.

Hope to see you on the water, have fun and paddle safe!
