It’s the highest water level we’ve seen in the lake, due to flooding upstream. Someone moved the kayaks to the tennis court, hooray. And the lake sticks are underwater!
Nextdoor Mount Lookout
Due to the rain received in the Kerrville area, the headwaters of the Guadalupe River, there will be a rise in the Guadalupe River heading into Canyon Lake.
Right now, the flow in Kerrville is around 129,000 CFS.
ABOVE Canyon Lake, we are bracing for approximately a 30’ rise in the river. There are road closures anticipated on FM 311, Rebecca Creek Road, and other low areas.
Please be prepared if you live above Canyon Lake.
CANYON LAKE: The Lake will be fine. It is more than prepared and able to hold this amount of water. THIS is why it is there. We are expecting approximately a 10’ rise in the lake at this time. Water releases will start soon, and will likely be at approximately 5000 CFS. The Corps is currently watching the downstream conditions before opening the gates.
