TG’s paddle the Colorado River

The TG Crew took advantage of the 70+ degree weather and ran 6.8 miles of the Colorado River from Fisherman’s Park to Tahitian Village – Bastrop, TX. Birding was good as we spotted Red Shoulder Hawks, Belted Kingfishers, Teals, a Piliated Woodpecker, Cormorants, American Coots, Black Vultures, Cardinals, and more. We saw two huge soft-shelled turtles and tons of hard shells. At a good flow of 1710 CFS, we explored the channels less traveled every chance we had available. It took us 2.25 hours with lunch. FYI – the wind can be a factor because the Colorado River is so open. At this water level, longer boats are nice for tracking and speed. There are very few obstacles. This is a good river run for beginners.
