Canyon Lake + Guadalupe River Area (830) 907-2300


Lake & River Conditions

Our news page has been down for awhile and we have recently been able to make updates again.  There are still some kinks to work through, but should be resolved soon.  Thank you for your patience as we work through the issues.   All boat ramps except 21 and 22 are open at this time.  

The lines to launch watercraft have drastically decreased now that there are more ramps to launch from.  Currently, the lake level is slightly above 909 msl, very close to normal elevation.   Flows on the Guadalupe River are down to safe recreational levels for tubing and kayaking.

After July 4 weekend, the flows were reduced to the 300cfs range and have pretty much stayed there for most of the month.  On July 30, GBRA released the following information on releases for Canyon Dam:

Informational Buoys Coming to Canyon Lake

After hearing concerns from law enforcement and safety agencies who respond to boating accidents, disabled vessels, and medical emergencies on Canyon Lake, WORD has taken on a project to aid boaters in knowing where they are on the lake during the day and at night. The project consists of two parts. First, a line of numbered buoys on the water stretching from west to east in the approximate center of the lake. These buoys are for informational purposes only and do not denote hazards or a clear channel, although they will be placed for the most part on the old river channel which is generally the deepest part of the lake.

The second part of the project is to place large reflective signage at every boat ramp around the lake facing out towards the water. This will aid people in both knowing where they are and finding the ramp they launched from. WORD expects this project to be completed by the first part of June.
