anyone know if the river has much water. someone told my wife that the river is very low and they were thinking of shutting it down due to bacteria. Anyone have any real info out there so I don't waste my time with going yet. Hate to burn days looking at rocks and floating in the camp water hose. LOL thanks for any info folks!

I with you spout. We sit on the rocks in the middle of the river and pass out jello to the ones who deserve it.

Kind of hard to do with no one floating and sitting on the bank.

my brother in Austin has been watching it and says they are only putting out 125 from the dam right now so the river is extremely low. Dont know about bacteria since that water is very cold.

I was there last weekend and i go annually, my aunt has a house on the river in sattler. The water was the lowest i have ever seen it. It is still flowing but there is alot of walking to do and it takes forever. The forth of july crowd was there thick on saturday. My aunt has an island in front of her house so people like to rest there. I saw one girl try to get out of the rain and fall down the hill. A little intoxicated. One threw up in her bushes and one decided to go pee over there aswell. On sunday there was no one on the river. It went from one extreme to the other. The outflow is 114 cfs which is not very good. If you have the option i would wait for rain.

well I knopw the Comal is alway loaded with it. several years back my son ripped his foot open, went to the ER and when they found out it was in that river he got first treatment. if it's real low that water will warm up quick too. I know there are some river rats on here.

With ten thousand people walking kick rocks last week all ready I bet there's not much. Besides the locals are on to those tricks bro. I dive up a few up there that that's all the do for a living is get glasses and jewelry and resale. Heck of a summer job.

Was just there this weekend. Water was to low to float. We floated the Comal. Be careful of the new noise law on the river. If your radio can be heard 50ft away its against the law and enforced. Got the ticket to prove it lol.

Fellas, I've given up on the Gaudalupe in the last ten years. You should try the Nueces down near Laguna, or Park Chalk Bluff. The water is freaking beautiful, clear ,cool and clean. Lots of narrows near chalk bluff to tube thru and tons of wildlife. Its a 4 1/2 hour trip from houston, but well worth it. I love it there, Have fun G.
