Brazos River - Paddling
The Brazos River south of Possum Kingdom Lake has beautiful bluffs and a more narrow channel. Paddling the Brazos River makes a great weekend adventure for anyone looking to get away from the city and camp on a sand bar. Striped bass, painted buntings, mule deer, and the desert cottontail all make their home along the Brazos River which runs 840 miles diagonal across much of the state of Texas.
Destination Distance From Downtown
The Brazos River does require portaging depending on water levels.
Time To Complete
Spring and Fall
For ideal conditions, high water levels and low temperatures, paddle the Brazos in the Spring. The fall months provide another chance to get on the river, but low water levels will likely mean more portaging. Even if you pack enough water, don’t attempt to run the river in the heat of the Texas summer.
