FYI,
I just learned this myself, but you have to get a permit from LNRA to bow-fish on Texana.
The permit is free, but you have to go to their office during regular business hours to obtain.
It expires with your license, so once you get it, you're good for a while before you need to renew it.

I'm in Eagle Lake this morning for work, so I drove under the bridge on my way in this morning.
As I was hoping, all of the mud is cleared off of the ramp except for the very bottom, which is expected on a river ramp.
No one should have any problem with any vehicle now.

Theres some pretty nasty rocks downstream of the ramp in altair. Lots of people attempt to hunt it for ducks and there usually aren't many ducks. When it gets low like this most people running it have surface drives, jets, or airboats.

Good to know, thanks for the info.

I've only launched there once, and I went a couple of miles upstream and found no water shallower than about 3-4'.
I'd like to go back again to see how far upstream I can go.

We used to have a deer lease on the Guadalupe and I quickly learned to always go upstream from the launch point.
The first time I went out, I ended up spinning my hub on some rocks coming back. I couldn't rev the engine enough to make it all the way back and ended up having to drag the boat up a bank in a different spot.
Since then, I've always gone upstream.
If anything goes wrong, I can always drift back downstream and use the trolling motor to control the drift.

There's rocks upstream to if you go far enough. I've ran past Columbus many times. It's deep right close to the boat ramp but once you get past that it can get hairy quick.

Are you saying the rocks are upstream of Columbus?
Meaning it's good from Altair to Columbus?

No there's rocks as it starts to get shallow up from Altair they are on the left side you will see them hopefully before you hit them then you just remember where they are and stay wide right.

Ahh, gotcha.
The river was up about 2' above normal when I went, so those rocks were well under water.
I'll be sure to watch for them if I go back.
Thanks.
