Get thee to the San Jacinto River!

Due to the extreme drought the dam on Lake Conroe has been opened to send 150 million gallons of water a day down the San Jacinto River to Lake Houston. The city desperately needs this water to keep it flowing out of Houston's taps. This hasn't been done in over twenty years!

But more importantly it means now is a great time to paddle the San Jacinto River. I recommend putting in under the hwy. 242 bridge and ending at Edgewater Park in Humble. That's 19 miles but it goes by fast and it's really beautiful.

Hit the water, friends. This may be your only shot for quite a while!

Adventure! Excitement! Beneficial Droughts!
