Kayaking the Colorado River in Bastrop County Texas

This last weekend we kayaked on the Colorado River from the new private access we have cleared at our ranch located just outside of  Bastrop about half way to Smithville. We dropped in about 9:30 in the morning. It was not a very windy morning so the waters just off our ranch were calm. We are located in one of the deepest areas of the river so the waters were not challenging to kayak. We paddled upstream about an hour and then “floated” back home. The water levels are still fairly high so we did not encounter any rapids upstream. We know there are rapids just below us on the Smithville side. It was a nice paddle on a beautiful day. We are thinking about offering parking and access to the river to kayak enthusiasts from our ranch. If you are looking for property on a river, stream please give me a call at 512-743-0516 I would love to help you find it.
