Water must have heard there was a virus around and left... 30 CFS... those of you coming bring your walking shoes

Still beautiful as always, and a nice way to kick off the summer. We always enjoy coming Memorial weekend because the water is usually up earlier in the year. Wrong this time.

Definitely a different year, no Garner Dance for my daughters so I'm sure they're a little disappointed but we're here and having fun.

Hate to hear that! Have reservations in Concan for Fathers day. May have to head over to Camp wood/Rock springs & check out Nueces. Maybe a good rain before then!

We usually go early June, this year the whole group couldn’t get together until late July. We will see how not goes. Hopefully the GSP Dance will be going by then. My boys will be sad if not. Coach

We’re staying in Leakey the last week in June. I always look forward to this even if we don’t get to float the river. Missed going last year but we went to Washington and Alaska for 17 days. Something hade to give. We’ve stayed in a number of houses in Leakey and Concan and prefer a particular one in Leakey with a nice rock ledge and riverbank to sit our chairs in the water when the CFM is too low to float. We didn’t get our regular number of people so the 5 bedroom house is out. I’ve always wanted to try out the 4 bedroom house next door so this is our year. Gonna be riding Harley’s for wind therapy on the 3 Sisters in the mornings again and river therapy in the afternoons. Life is good.

We will be going mid July, look forward to this every year. Rented a 4 bedroom house so the kids and grandkids can all hang out together. Good times.

We are headed up June 12th. Hoping for some rain. 30 is bad, was there when it was 39. Not ideal. I like it about 100. Y’all have fun

Yes sir weak. Maybe it'll rain some. Strange thing is everything is green and blooming so they've had some rain but obviously not enough to charge the aquifer.

Dang Shane, low water means more sitting and drinking beers. I thought I saw a good shower over that part of the world the other day?

It doesn't look like we're gonna make a river trip this year

Radar shows they may be getting some tonight. Look short lived though and will probably be gone in 3 weeks.

Headed there Friday. Looks like a good chance of rain this week. We always have a great time regardless of the flow. I enjoy hanging out just sitting in the river, listening to music, drinking cold beer, watching the kids play, and shooting the bull with everyone just as much as or maybe more than actually floating any way.

I’m headed to Leakey on Thursday, weathers not looking good for helping the river any. We use this for a vacation and fill the freezer with axis too so, either way, it’ll still be a blast. The place we’re staying at is a 60 ac place on the river so, while I’m out with my little boy shooting axis the wife and daughter are watching them in the front yard.

Over heard some older local gents talking at the Lost Maples Cafe this morning, they said it rained 2.4 inches last night. Should definitely help the river.

Very packed Saturday and Yesterday, Friday hardly anyone. I'd imagine today won't be bad at all. We're gonna try and float this afternoon if the sun will come out. Still in the low 70s here with a north wind....

Supposed to rain this evening again.

Leakey was insane this weekend. Stopped by low water crossing in Campwood and that was insane as well.

We are south of Utopia and we’ve gotten 4” the last 48 hours. Should help quite a bit.

Very little rain this evening but lots of thunder, headed home tomorrow. Possibly another trip booked later this summer depending on rain. I'm sure liking this voilitale atmosphere for the Frio and our ranches south of the border...

Wife is wanting to go to Garner. Anyone know if it’s open? Have looked online but didn’t see where we could book a camping spot.

Will be calling tomorrow but wanted to know if anyone has been recently.

I believe all state parks are open to day-use only right now and no overnight camping?

I think they opened up to new reservations yesterday. We are headed down next Thursday, but we reserved a few months back.
